Staff Reviews


Arundhati Roy’s writing consistently alters and advances the world it is given to. Azadi is no different. Through this collection of essays, Roy interrogates, illuminates, and inspires worlds to come—deliberately dissecting our world’s underbelly, Roy leaves nearly nothing untouched and everything expanding. She writes of the ongoing pandemic, the continuing struggles for freedom in Kashmir, and what can, does, and will exist in the spaces between freedom. Azadi, meaning freedom in Urdu, feels a little closer after reading this book.

Description


IN THIS SERIES OF ELECTRIFYING ESSAYS, ARUNDHATI ROY CHALLENGES US TO REFLECT ON THE MEANING OF FREEDOM IN A WORLD OF GROWING AUTHORITARIANISM. THE ESSAYS INCLUDE MEDITATIONS ON LANGUAGE, PUBLIC AS WELL AS PRIVATE, AND ON THE ROLE OF FICTION AND ALTERNATIVE IMAGINATIONS IN THESE DISTURBING TIMES. THE PANDEMIC, ROY SAYS, IS A PORTAL BETWEEN ONE WORLD AND ANOTHER. FOR ALL THE ILLNESS AND DEVASTATION IT HAS LEFT IN ITS WAKE, IT IS AN INVITATION TO THE HUMAN RACE, AN OPPORTUNITY, TO IMAGINE ANOTHER WORLD.
