The widely acclaimed novel of an abused woman in India and her fight for freedom: “A triumph.” —The Guardian

Named a Best Book of the Year by the Financial Times, the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, and the Observer
Shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction
Longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize
Shortlisted for the Jhalak Prize

Based on the author’s own experience, When I Hit You follows the narrator as she falls in love with a university professor and agrees to be his wife. Soon, the newlywed experiences extreme violence at her husband’s hands and finds herself socially isolated. Yet hope keeps her alive. Writing becomes her salvation, a supreme act of defiance, in a harrowing yet fierce and funny novel that not only examines one woman’s battle against terror and loneliness but reminds us how fiction and stories can help us escape.

    I do not have words to describe how much I loved this book. It's made worse by the fact that I'm not good at reviewing either.

    All I can say is that this was perhaps one of my greatest reads this year. One of my favorite books.

    Some men leave me because I am unpredictable – sunshine one moment and storm clouds the next; the scent of summer rain with the sleep-depriving aftershock of thunder. They cannot keep pace with the fighting that follows the kissing that follows the argument that follows the laughing in unending circles.

    Sometimes the shame is not the beatings, not the rape.

    The shaming is in being asked to stand to judgment.

    He believes that after him, I will have nothing left in me to love, to make love, to give pleasure.
