First reviews!

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 honestLeaving India is a story of migration, but it is also, as Hajratwala reminds us, about “the ones we leave behind.”
