A Virtual Féile Event Cauvery Madhavan

About this Event

Scribes at the Rock has been one the main literary features of Féile and over the years the roll-call of guests have included Roddy Doyle, Gillian Slovo, Emma Healy, Natalya O’Flaherty, Irvine Walsh, Pat McCabe, Ronan Bennett, Marina Lewycka, Ross O’Carroll-Kelly, Kevin Barry, and Linton Kwesi Johnson to mention but a few! Writers read from their works and share the secrets of creativity with Danny Morrison. Cauvery Madhavan has written three novels – Paddy Indian, The Uncoupling and her latest The Tainted, released in May 2020, has received rave reviews. It is a tragic love story which begins in 1920 at the time of the reallife Connaught Rangers Mutiny in India when Irish soldiers of the British army learn of the atrocities of the Black and Tans back in Ireland. But it is more than that and examines issues of race, exploitation and prejudice. Cauvery, from India, moved to Ireland thirtythree years ago. She lives with her husband and three children in County Kildare.

Bhí Scríobhaithe ag the Rock ar cheann de na príomhghnéimeachtaí litríochta ag Féile le blianta. I measc na ndaoine a ghlac páirt iontu bhí Roddy Doyle, Gillian Slovo, Emma Healy, Natalya O’Flaherty, Irvine Walsh, Pat McCabe, Ronan Bennett, Marina Lewycka, Ross O’Carroll-Kelly, Kevin Barry, agus Linton Kwesi Johnson chomh maith le daoine eile nach iad. Beidh scríbhneoirí ag léamh óna saothar féin agus roinnfidh siad a rúin chruthaitheachta le Danny Morrison. Tá trí úrscéal scríofa ag Cauvery Madhavan – Paddy Indian, The Uncoupling agus an túrscéal is déanaí de na trí cinn The Tainted. Tá ardmholadh faighte ag The Tainted, a eisíodh i mí na Bealtaine 2020, ó na léirmheastóirí. Is scéal grá tragóideach é a thosaíonn in 1920 ag an am a tharla Ceannairc sna Connaught Rangers san India nuair a d’fhoghlaim saighdiúirí Éireannacha in arm na Breataine faoi na hainghníomhartha a rinne na Dúchrónaigh in Éirinn. Tá níos mó ná sin san úrscéal áfach mar iniúchann sé ceisteanna faoi chine, faoi dhúshaothrú agus faoi chlaontacht. Bhog Cauvery arb as an India di go hÉirinn tríocha bliain ó shin. Cónaíonn sí lena fear céile agus a dtriúr páistí i gContae Chill Dara.
