A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry



Set in India, A Fine Balance brings together four people from varying backgrounds to create a story that transcends time and culture leaving the reader a bit more appreciative of the little things so often taken for granted.  As the four main characters grow and change, lose and win, fight each other and bring joy to one another, mourn life changing losses and celebrate fleeting happiness, the reader can’t help but feel a connection that makes one wonder how human beings can allow such suffering to exist in the world anywhere.  Mistry’s words accomplish what fiction does at it’s best reaching beyond the heart and mind to transform the soul.
