A heart transplant, sudden blindness, and HIV infection—how do the traumas of the body drive the novels of French writer Maylis de Kerangal (The Heart), Chilean Lina Meruane (Seeing Red), and South African Masande Ntshanga (The Reactive)? And how do the authors’ very graphic explorations raise issues, both physical and metaphysical? Moderated by Neelika Jayawardane.
