Set in mid-1970s India, "A Fine Balance" is a subtle and compelling narrative about four unlikely characters who come together in circumstances no one could have foreseen soon after the government declares a 'State of Internal Emergency'. It is a breathtaking achievement: panoramic yet humane, intensely political yet rich with local delight; and, above all, compulsively readable.

“Beautifully written, and completely absorbing.”

I didn't put this book down for days, finding myself completely lost in the intricacies of the developing relationships between the characters. Not only is it an important book, covering an era that I know so... More

“Beautiful”

This book is my all time favourite. A fanatastic fusion of 1970s India, Indian history, culture and character.
The structure of the book really works, with a taster of the situation of the characters, then delving... More
