A Fine Balance

by Rohinton Mistry
£8.99   paperback  Faber and Faber (2006)

A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry 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 forseen, soon after the government declares a 'State of Internal Emergency'. It is a breathtaking achievement: panoramic yet humane, intensely political yet rich with local detail; and, above all, compulsively readable.

"A masterpiece of illumination and grace. Like all great fiction, it transforms our understanding of life."
(Guardian)
