By Rohinton Mistry

With a compassionate realism and narrative sweep that bear in mind the paintings of Charles Dickens, this fantastic novel captures all of the cruelty and corruption, dignity and heroism, of India.

The time is 1975. where is an unnamed urban via the ocean. the govt. has simply declared a country of Emergency, in whose upheavals 4 strangers--a lively widow, a tender scholar uprooted from his idyllic hill station, and tailors who've fled the caste violence in their local village--will be thrust jointly, compelled to proportion one cramped residence and an doubtful destiny.

As the characters flow from mistrust to friendship and from friendship to like, A nice Balance creates a permanent landscape of the human spirit in an inhuman nation.
