Esra is a novel by the German-Jewish writer Maxim Biller, published in 2003. The novel tells the story of a turbulent love affair between a Jewish writer and a Turkish actress in Berlin. The novel caused a legal scandal when it was banned by a German court for violating the privacy rights of Biller's ex-girlfriend and her mother, who claimed that they were recognizable as the main characters of the novel. The ban was upheld by the Federal Constitutional Court in 2007, making Esra one of the few books in Germany that are forbidden to be published, sold, or lent.
