004 – A Murder on Malabar Hill, Milk Teeth


Aadisht Khanna and Ashish Kulkarni were joined by Nehaa Chaudhari to discuss two novels set in the Bombay and Mumbai of the past: Sujata Massey’s A Murder on Malabar Hill; and Amrita Mahale’s Milk Teeth. The conversation took its usual diversions, and covered television legal dramas, the deleterious effect of Kolkata on Parsis, the major changes Indian houses have gone through; and, of course, coffee.

This episode has mild spoilers for A Murder on Malabar Hill and serious spoilers for Milk Teeth.
