Sreemoyee Piu Kundu

Sreemoyee Piu Kundu is an acclaimed journalist and columnist on gender and sexuality. She wrote 'Faraway Music', her first novel, in 2013, followed by her bestselling feminist erotica, 'Sita’s Curse', which explored female desire through the eyes of a Gujarati housewife. 'You’ve Got the Wrong Girl', her third work of fiction, a light-hearted rom-com, broke new ground in Indian ‘lad-lit’. In 2017, she wrote her first non-fiction work, the widely-appreciated and critically acclaimed 'Status Single', a narrative drawing from the lives of 3000 urban Indian single women, about the daily struggle of being single in a country where the highest validation for women remains marriage and motherhood. Sreemoyee’s latest novel 'CUT' has been chosen this year as the final year performance text at the National School of Drama. It will be directed by acclaimed theatre director Abhilash Pillai. Sreemoyee is the recipient of the NDTV L'Oréal Women of Worth award for Excellence in Literature. She has been signed up for her memoirs, 'Bad Blood', to be published by Bloomsbury and has just completed an inter-generational family saga, 'All Our Other Lies', set in Kolkata. Sreemoyee is single and lives between New Delhi and Kolkata.
