The Books of Esther

Esther David has been compared both to Isaac Bashevis Singer and Rohinton Mistry. The author of The Book of Esther and Shalom India Housing Society told us wry, affectionate tales about the dwindling Bene Israel community. She spoke about the conflicting desire to be part of Indian society while retaining a Jewish identity and disclosed how and why she came to write about this unique community, to which she still belongs.
