Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Firozsha Baag is an apartment building in Bombay. Its ceilings need plastering and some of the toilets leak appallingly, but its residents are far from desperate, though sometimes contentious and unforgiving. In these witty, poignant stories, Mistry charts the intersecting lives of Firozsha Baag, yielding a delightful collective portrait of a middle-class Indian community poised between the old ways and the new."A fine collection...the volume is informed by a tone of gentle compassion for seemingly insignificant lives."--Michiko Kakutani, New York Times


Review:

"...[E]very story in the collection is finely crafted."

Alberto Manguel, Maclean's

Review:

"[Mistry's] ability through antic humor and compassion to make the repellent--or, at the very least, sad--story material...life-affirming, even ebullient, is astonishing given the horrifyingly stunted lives he depicts."

Hope Cooke, New York Times Book Review
