Short Book Review: The Walled City by Esther David

SBR: The Walled City by Esther David is a coming of age story set around (and mostly after) India’s independence. It is based in the city of Ahmedabad. It is a rare window into the lives of Indian Jews, especially women. That itself should be enough of a reason to give it a try. Its evocative writing is a huge cherry on the top. For those like me, who are unfamiliar with the community, it is also very educative.

To read or not to read: Yes.
