March's Meeting - A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry

India, 1975, and a callous government has declared a State of Emergency.

In these uncertain times a spirited Parsi widow
determined to avoid a second marriage takes a student boarder and two
Hindu tailors into her ramshackle flat. The four strangers whose lives have
become inextricably linked find themselves crossing divides of caste,
class and religion to form the most unexpected of friendships.

Produced by Tamasha - creator of the groundbreaking East is East and the award-winning musical Fourteen Songs, Two Weddings and a Funeral - A Fine Balance was first seen at Hampstead Theatre in 2006, where it enjoyed a sell-out run.

    Apologies I can no longer make it tomorrow night. Just to say I loved this book although I read it about 5 years ago, but the story has stayed with me since then - emotionally draining, but wonderfully written!
