British Psychoanalytical Society (incorporating the Institute of Psychoanalysis)
Monica Ali is a well-known British novelist of Bangladeshi and English heritage. Her best-known novel, Brick Lane, was shortlisted for the 2003 Booker Prize and has been translated into 26 languages; she has just published her fifth book Love Marriage. In both and other novels, she explores the complexities of modern multicultural British society and the experience of identity and displacement, love and relationships, from a woman’s perspective. She will be in dialogue with Anuradha Menon, a consultant psychiatrist and psychoanalyst of Indian origin, exploring some of these issues. This dialogue will be chaired by Kathryn Pugh, a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst.
