Invisible Man, the seminal work (controversies and shortcomings included) talking about the Indian transmasculine network, is an important work for bringing the community’s voice to the fore.

In this episode of India Booked, Ayushi Mona speaks to author Nandini Krishnan on how the book came to be, what the interview process looked like, how India’s socio-religio-political realities play out within the network, the friction that the book caused after being released, and much, much more. Tune in now!

Nandini is also the author of Hitched: The Modern Woman and Arranged Marriage. She has translated the recent release Estuary by Perumal Murugan, originally published in Tamil as Kazhimugam. An extract from her novel-in-progress was one of the five winners of the Caravan and Writers of India Festival contest, 2014. She is also a playwright and alumna of the Writers’ Bloc workshop conducted by the Royal Court Theatre, London.

Nandini lives in Madras, where she spends most of her day rescuing her manuscripts and her favourite books from eighteen four-legged masters.
