The Gypsy Goddess is clever, serious, witty, devastating, unusual and breathtakingly varied – Outlook
Kandasamy’s spirit suffuses the telling with a nod to the unconventional – Business Line
The Gypsy Goddess is a hard hitting tale, and even though it sometimes seems driven by the author’s whimsy, it’s a disturbing true story of oppression, atrocity, numbing poverty, class war, caste conflict, brutal rape, pillage, cold-blooded carnage… and of justice both delayed and denied – Deccan Herald
It is not just with the content that Kandasamy pushes the literary envelope; it expresses itself in the way she plays with form, bending narrative conventions and offering multiple perspectives – Mint
This is a novel whose audacity is matched only by its penchant for shifting register. Above all, it’s a book that is not obsessed with being pretty – The Sunday Guardian
