What About Meera

What About Meera

What About Meera

What About Meera tells the tale of Meera Narain, a twenty-two-year-old woman from Durban who escapes her abusive arranged marriage to run away to Dublin, where she takes up a job as a care-giver at a school for autistic children.

After years of abuse at the hands of her doctor husband, Meera’s fractured and damaged psyche sends her spiralling into a doomed relationship with Ian Gallagher, the father of one of her autistic patients. The obsessive affair uncovers frightening truths about Meera’s childhood on a farm in rural KwaZulu-Natal, setting her on a destructive path of alcoholism and hallucinations. It is in this dangerous state that Meera commits a horrifying act and is ostracised from the world where she thought she would find happiness.

Pulsating with life and colour and a considerable amount of black humour, What About Meera is the gripping story of a woman’s attempts to rise above her circumstances and take control of her fate.
