Mistry's previous novel, 'A very fine balance', was a great insight into the lives of people living in Mumbai (Bombay). This takes a similar, but distinct slant, tracking the shenanigans within a family with a complex history channeling Ibsen.
Great observations, with well drawn characters, the story provides another rich tapestry of the culture and society of modern India.
Recommended, though its a bit long, and the story only just lasts as long as the book ;)...Continua
Story of the lives of a Parsi family in Bombay. The characters are beautifully drawn, and the book is suffused with compassion.
Family matters is the story of a Parsi family set in Mumbai, India but it is not just about them. It is also the story of Bombay and the spirit and strength of people there. A great read.
