The Sari Shop

I came across “The Sari Shop” in the “New Books” shelf at my local public library. I like reading fiction from around the world, and our library gets a fair number of books written by Indian writers for English-speaking audiences. I don’t know if this is because of the demographics of San Leandro, the particular preferences of our librarians or the fact that literature – like so many technical and service jobs – has been outsourced to India. No matter, I enjoy reading these books and “The Sari Shop”, a first time effort by novelist Rupa Bajwa, was no exception.
