PEN Centre in Germany’s Darmstadt has awarded the Hermann Kesten Prize to Indian author and poet Meena Kandasamy. Previous recipients include Günter Grass and Harold Pinter.

“Not a ‘Ms Pleasant’ but more of a ‘Ms Militancy’, like the title of one of her books,” said vice-president of German PEN Centre Cornelia Zetzsche.

Her books include “The Gypsy Goddess”, and “When I Hit You: Or, A Portrait of the Writer as a Young Wife”.
