"Major writers differ from minor ones, even great minor ones, in their ability to handle the big questions: death, family, the passing of time, the inevitability of loss, God or the corresponding God-shaped hole. Mistry handles all of them in an accomplished style entirely his own."
Brooke Allen, Atlantic Monthly, September 2002Review:
"In a polished but economical and unobtrusive prose, [Mistry] writes of household dramas, of plausible confined, earthbound lives seeking to generate on their own a spark of relieving magic. Mistry harks back to the nineteenth-century novelists, for whom every detail...added a vital piece to the full social picture, and for whom every incident illustrated the eventually crushing weight of the world. Liveliness, precision, weight: these old-fashioned mimetic virtues, and the broad sympathy that calls them into being, cannot be taken for granted....In a world of hurry and quick artistic killing, Mistry has kept the patience to tease narrative and moral interest out of domestic life...."
