Editorial Reviews

Review

“Jaswal tackles serious themes (arranged vs forced marriage, traditional vs modern culture) with a light and funny touvh. A page-turner your commute will thank you for.” (Glamour Magazine)

“By turns erotic, romantic, and mysterious, this novel of women defying patriarchial strictures enchants.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“A page-turner your commute will thank you for. Tackles serious themes with a light and funny touch.” (Glamour (UK))

“Warm and hilariously funny.” (Good Housekeeping (UK))

“Heady stuff ... a funny and moving tale of desire and its discontents.” (The Economist)

“Charming ... This is a sparkling read.” (Publishers Weekly)

“I loved this novel—it’s so big-hearted and earthy and funny. Best of all, it turns many preconceptions upside down, and opens up a world that so many of us have only glimpsed. A rattlingly good story.” (Deborah Moggach, author of THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL)

From the Back Cover

Every woman has a secret life . . .

Nikki, a modern daughter of Indian immigrants, has spent most of her twenty-odd years distancing herself from the traditional Sikh community of her childhood, preferring a more independent (that is, Western) life. When her father’s death leaves the family financially strapped, Nikki impulsively takes a job teaching a “creative writing” course at the community center in the beating heart of London’s close-knit Punjabi community. 

The proper Sikh widows who show up are expecting to learn English, not short-story writing. When one of the widows finds a book of erotica and shares it with the class, Nikki realizes that beneath their white dupattas, her students have a wealth of fantasies and memories that they’ve held in for far too long. Eager to liberate these modest women, she teaches them how to express their untold stories, unleashing creativity of the most unexpected—and exciting—kind. 

As the class grows, a group called the Brothers, who have appointed themselves Southall’s “moral police,” threaten to reveal the class's scandalous stories and the mysterious secrets lurking beneath this seemingly sedate, tight-knit community.  

A lively, sexy, and thought-provoking East-meets-West story about community, friendship, and women’s lives at all ages, Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows is a reader’s delight.
