Quick post to say I’m so excited to read these first reviews of my book — what a great way to begin the weekend!
San Francisco Chronicle review by ABRAHAM VERGHESE:
Leaving India gives us a means to understand the forces that took so many Indians (my parents included) away from their birth land … Echoes of V.S. Naipaul … Rich, entertaining and illuminating.
Washington Post review by SADIA SHEPARD:
Meticulously researched and evocatively written … searingly honest … Leaving India is a story of migration, but it is also, as Hajratwala reminds us, about “the ones we leave behind.”
Everyone back here in the bay was so so excited to see the Chronicle feature on you! You are so famous!
I won’t be there tonight, but I’ll see you at Eros next month!
