    With a compassionate realism and narrative sweep that recall the work of Charles Dickens, this magnificent novel captures all the cruelty and corruption, dignity and heroism, of India. The time is 1975. The place is an unnamed city by the sea. The government has just declared a State of Emergency, in whose upheavals four strangers - a spirited widow, a young student uprooted from his idyllic hill station, and two tailors who have fled the caste violence of their native village - will be thrust together, forced to share one cramped apartment and an uncertain future.

    In the India of the mid-1970s, Indira Gandhi's government has just come to power. It institutionalizes corruption and arbitrary force, most oppressive to the poorest and weakest people under its sway. Against this backdrop, in an unnamed city by the sea, four people struggle to survive. Dina, Maneck, and two tailors, the Untouchables Om and Ishvar, who are sewing in Dina's service, undergo a series of reversals.

    One of the most talked-about books of the year, A Fine Balance captures all the cruelty and corruption, dignity and heroism, of India in 1975. It is an Oprah Book Club selection, and has won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in fiction, the Giller Prize, and the Commonwealth Writers Prize. Mistry "needs no infusion of magic realism to vivify the real. The real world, through his eyes, is magical," says The New York Times.
