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.)

      Thnx for the reminder Kieran! I've been checking out a few locations for reasons of variety, but the ones I've seen won't do, so I've decided to go with our usual place for this one: café Krom at the Utrechtsestraat 76.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
