About the book:
"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 independant (that is, Western) life. When her father´s death leaves the family financially strapped, Nikki impulsivley takes a job teaching a "creative writing" course at the community center in the beating heart of London's close-knit Punjab 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 her white dupattas, her students have a wealth 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."

Nikki is a young Indian Londoner. She has given up her law studies, lives and works in or above a pub and is taking a course in Southall, a large traditional Sikh district. There she is supposed to teach women to read and write. In the middle of the day, the women in the course, who are all widowed, begin to exchange erotic stories - and really hot stories at that! The women begin to emancipate themselves gently, Nikki herself reconciles with her past and future, and along the way she solves a murder case.
It's hard to imagine women getting together to tell such salacious stories. Overall, it is a beautiful and interesting book that I enjoyed reading.

Nikki ist eine junge indischstämmige Londonerin. Sie hat ihr Jura-Studium aufgegeben, lebt und arbeitet in bzw. über einem Pub und nimmt einen Kurs in Southall an, einem großen von traditionellen Sikh geprägten Stadtteil. Dort soll sie Frauen lesen und schreiben lernen. Stadt dessen beginnen die Frauen im Kurs, die alle verwitwet sind, erotische Geschichten auszutauschen- und zwar wirklich heiße Geschichten! Die Frauen beginnen sich sachte zu emanzipieren, Nikki selbst versöhnt sich mit ihrer Vergangenheit und Zukunft und nebenbei löst sie noch einen Mordfall.
Man kann sich kaum vorstellen, dass sich Frauen zusammensetzen um sich derartig schlüpfrige Geschichten zu erzählen. Insgesamt ist es ein schönes und interessantes Buch, das ich gerne gelesen habe.

Liebe Anke, ich hatte leider gar nichts, was deinem Beuteschema entspricht. Aber du kannst englisch lesen und liest auch mal über deinen Horizont. Vielleicht gefällt es dir also so gut wie denen, die das Buch schon hatten!

Wow, that was fun! :-) The stories went a bit further than I expected, so it was good that the text is in English and in rather small print, so a casual glance from the side probably did not reveal so much - I read most of my books on the train to and from work. ;-)
