[ FICTION [ Erotic Stories for Punjabi Women Balli Kaur Jaswal The push and pull between traditional Sikh values and life in present- day London forms the backdrop of this heart-warming novel. When a group of older Sikh widows accidentally join a creative writing course led by young feminist Nikki – the daughter of Indian immigrants and a law school drop-out – their stories take on a life of their own. As the women unleash their passionate fantasies and memories through writing, they come increasingly under threat from the community’s self-appointed “moral police”. Three unsolved deaths in the Sikh community symbolise the ultimate penalty for trying to be heard. The beauty of Balli Kaur Jaswal’s writing lies in her adeptness at broaching serious themes with a light and comic touch. What should I read next?
