A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry

This political novel brings a lively widow, two untouchable tailors and a student of refrigeration to share accommodation during the vicious Emergency laws of Mrs Gandhi's India. Mistry's energetic realism and command of comic nuance capture the long-suffering citizens of India in all their variety and stoic endurance.
Rohinton Mistry was born in Bombay.
