"The Clay Typewriter" by novelist Anuradha Roy

Posted on October 15, 2019

This lecture discusses how mud and words are connected in Anuradha Roy's work; how earth, water, air, and fire fusing to create pots is a metaphor for the way in which real and imagined archives can come together in a writer’s imagination and result in fictional worlds. Roy delivered the annual Tagore Lecture in Modern Indian Literature at A. D. White House on September 20, 2019.
