What a beautiful piece about the trials and joys of a truly incredible woman! Subramanian and Levine do a brilliant job of weaving famous literary moments and reflections into the narrative Sethu's own storied life. The piece paints an especially nuanced portrait of Sethu's relationship with her husband. Whereas a less skillful portrayal might have come off as overtly editorialized and ethnocentric, we get to hear Sethu's contradictory feelings played out firsthand, as in the part where she describes wanting to run away from her husband but still feeling the sensation of melting whenever she heard his voice. Without a doubt, "A Woman of No Consequence" melted me.

I loved this story- I think I'm about to go to bed happy! This woman is amazing, and I will look for her book when I go to Kerala this spring.

A Woman of No Consequence is engrossing and earnest, with a charming subject and smooth narration.
