This isn’t a scintillating book, but I came away with a clearer sense of this particular era in Indian history. The most interesting part of the book is Indira’s youth, and there are two reasons for that. The author had more of Indira’s letters to draw from during this period, so the picture that emerges is more personal. And the pre-independence period in India was more dramatic. All the political in-fighting of Indira’s later years is a little wearying.
