Product description

Amazon Review

Mistry does something that only the really natural writers can do: without apparent effort, manipulation or contrivance, he creates characters you like instantly and will gladly follow for as long as the novel leads. The book is about an Indian family during the years of Indira Ghandi's rule; it's also a study of the times, its politics and corruption, and was especially interesting for me, knowing so little about life in the rest of the world. It had to be a good book: after I read Such a Long Journey, I wanted to go right out and buy a plane ticket and see India for myself.

Synopsis

A story which tells how the gathering clouds of the Indo-Pakistan War impinge on the lives of a Bombay doctor and his family. His dreams, although modest, are denied him as he realizes he is not in control of events.
