THE BRASS NOTEBOOK – A MEMOIR

599.00

Your heart and world will be opened by reading The Brass Notebook, the intimate and political life of Devaki Jain, a young woman who dares to become independent even as her country of India does. Because she is also my oldest friend, I can tell you there is no one like her, yet only here in her writing have I learned the depth, breadth and universality of her adventures.—GLORIA STEINEM

A riveting account of the lifestory of a courageous woman who has all her life challenged what convention expects of her.—DESMOND TUTU

Devaki Jain was among those who initiated Indian women into recognizing their rights in society, and in asserting a visible presence, discarding their earlier imposed invisibility. When such a woman writes, inter-leaving her personal and public life…then what she has to say is not just a memoir, it is an event.—ROMILA THAPAR
