Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows is a one of a kind book with a story that is culturally so familiar to me, but almost nonexistent in the literary world. Balli Kaur Jaswal is a brilliant writer who wrote this cross genre book with all the masala you could ever want. She takes your guard down with the humor, hooks you in with the suspense, and opens your mind with the explorations of cultural traditions and stereotypes of Sikh/Desi people. It’s got the best of everything and something for everyone. Her unique blend of the humor, thriller, and erotic genres is genius. I absolutely love this book and am a huge fan of hers now. I will be honest in my review, however, and say that I was disappointed by the editors of this book. There are many small typos and errors that could have easily been corrected with some thorough line editing before publication. Luckily, Jaswal’s storytelling was powerful enough to distract even a stickler for grammar like myself from the errors and keep me hooked. Go read this book!
