A writer who tells stories from both male and female perspectives, there can be no pigeon-holing her as a feminist writer. Nair has reiterated that women should be allowed to live their lives according to their will without any apology, without being made to feel inferior. This strand runs through all her novels, including her latest. Intriguingly titled Eating Wasps, the novel recounts the stories of not one but 10 women who have had to deal with obstacles that threaten their existence….Eating Wasps is a novel about redemption and of women with the courage to write their own narratives without apology.
