Twenty years after her success novel The God of Small Things, India’s Arundhati Roy is back with a new novel: The Ministry of Utmost Happiness. But in between the two, Roy has been busy: through a number of essay books, she has dealt with issues such as pollution, human rights abuses, industrialization and social inequality, she has lived with the maoist guerilla in the jungle and visited the militarized zone in Kashmir. In this lecture, she outlines her literary and political work through twenty years.
The lecture was given as part of the House of Literature’s ten year anniversary, on September 14, 2017, as one out of three anniversary lectures about the Future of Literature.
