Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of My Seditious Heart, written by Arundhati Roy, read by Tania Rodrigues.

My Seditious Heart collects the work of a two-decade period when Arundhati Roy devoted herself to the political essay as a way of opening up space for justice, rights and freedoms in an increasingly hostile environment. Taken together, the essays speak in a uniquely spirited voice, marked by compassion, clarity and courage. 

Radical and superbly listenable, they speak always in defence of the collective, of the individual and of the land, in the face of the destructive logic of financial, social, religious, military and governmental elites.  

In constant conversation with the themes and settings of her novels, the essays form a near-unbroken memoir of Arundhati Roy's journey as both a writer and a citizen, of both India and the world, from 'The End of Imagination', which begins this book, to 'My Seditious Heart', with which it ends.

Brilliant essays, brilliantly read.

The intensity of Arundhati Roy's intelligence doesn't just illuminate the injustices of indian and global politics, but also provides a clear picture of what democracy is when it's captured by corporate interests and religious-nationalist ideology.

Eye opening

Thank you Arundhati Roy for the work that you do. The subjects of your essays were new to me but highlighted the scale of the corruption in India: from the true opinions of Gandhi, disastrous dam projects, the massacre of Muslims, to learning of the struggles that Ambedkar fought for. A long listen, but well worth using a credit for. Thank you to Tania Rodrigues for the mammoth effort in reading this immense volume. Despite the cruel nature of the essays, the voice was soothing.
