'A towering masterpiece by a writer of genius.'
Independent India, 1975. An unnamed city by the sea. The government has just declared a State of Emergency.  Amidst a backdrop of wild political turmoil, the lives of four unlikely strangers collide forever.
An epic panorama of modern India in all its corruption, violence, and heroism, A Fine Balance is Rohinton Mistry's prize-winning masterpiece: a Dickensian modern classic brimming with compassion, humour, and insight - and a hymn to the human spirit in an inhuman state. 'A masterpiece of illumination and grace.

Like all great fiction, it transforms our understanding of life.' Guardian
'Magical.' New York Times
'Monumental.' Time
'Astonishing.' Wall Street Journal
