India: A fine balance by Rohinton Mistry

Thanks for voting our poll on a book set in India! And the winner is:

*** A fine balance by Rohinton Mistry ***
Set in mid-1970s India, this novel 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.

Don't have time to read or finish the book?
You're more than welcome to join us anyway. Hope to see you all!

    It's been a while, but those of you who enjoyed it may also enjoy this radio adaptation of it by the BBC. (Thanks to Kieran for bringing this to my attention.) http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05mq8wr
