A Fine Balance

Mistry, Rohinton

A Fine Balance - London; Faber and Faber; 2006 - 614 Pages; Paperback

Set in mid-1970s India, A Fine Balance is a subtle and compelling narrative about four unlikely characters who come together in circumstances no one could have foreseen soon after the government declares a 'State of Internal Emergency'. It is a breathtaking achievement: panoramic yet humane, intensely political yet rich with local delight; and, above all, compulsively readable.
