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.
