Summary
From the author of the highly acclaimed A Fine Balance comes Rohinton Mistry’s eagerly anticipated new novel is set in Bombay in the mid-1990s. Nariman, an ailing, elderly Parsi widower, lives with his middle-aged stepchildren and dreams of the past. When he breaks an ankle and can no longer partake of his one pleasure, a daily walk through the neighborhood, his bitter stepdaughter schemes to move him to her sister's home and relieve herself of the burden of caring for him. The move is accomplished, but living in a new household with Roxana, her husband and two young boys sets into motion a series of events that lead to the unraveling of the family's secrets and surprising revelations from the past. Family Matters is a brilliantly evocative novel that confirms Mistry's a reputation as one of the finest writers of our time. ". . . . . a magnetic tale of family obligations that comes as close to perfect as a novel can get. "-Booklist
