Summary
"Prison & chocolate cake, the author's first book, is the story of her childhood. Its title dramatizes the combination of sacrifice and gay gallantry that carried India through the years of her struggle for freedom. It ends with the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, and in between it gives some perceptive and humorous glimpses of American life through the eyes of a young girl. Nayantara Sahgal describes what it was like growing up in Anand Bhawan, Allahabad, the home her parents shared with her uncle, Jawaharlal Nehru, during the years when Mahatma Gandi was leading the movement for independence"--Back cover
