about this book

Winner of the Governor General's Award and the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best Book of the Year

Through the best of motives, Gustad Noble becomes enmeshed in the corruption of the Indira Gandhi years.  Gustad's attempt to sort out his conflicting loyalties manages to be ribald and heartbreaking, deeply compassionate and unsparing, in its depiction of the venalities and compromises that make up this novel's large and teeming world.

"Add Rohinton Mistry to the growing list of Indian writers in English who are doing extraordinary things with the language.... Mistry tells his tale in a glorious foreign accent, and his observations of ordinary people caught out of step with a changing world are always sly and often poignant."--The Philadelphia Inquirer
