One of the highest-selling Malayalam writers today, #InduMenon’s ‘Lesbian Cow and other Stories’ is available for the first time in an English translation. Considered to be Kamala Das’s successor, this collection of sixteen stories are certainly not for the faint-hearted. As translator #NadanakumarK mentions in his introductory note: ‘Her narratives startle the reader by refusing to draw the line between lived and imagined terrains.’ Join us as the author and the translator discuss modern Malayalam literature, this collection and a story in particular with noted poet #KJayakumar.
