When a marriage is seriously in trouble, especially where there are children involved, the stakes are incredibly high.

In his latest novel, award winning writer Brannavan Gnannalingam leads the family's main breadwinner Kavita and her hardworking but emotionally drained husband Vishal, to a crossroads.

Slow Down, You're Here is about the need to find yourself, but is also something of a cautionary tale of life in a time of Covid lockdowns..  .

Brannavan reads from his novel, then talks to Lynn about the pressures on modern-day marriage - particularly when an old flame enters the picture.:
