About this title

Synopsis:

Explores the crowded, throbbing life of India, in this collection of stories set in Firozsha Baag, a Bombay apartment building characterized by an unexpected sense of community

From the Inside Flap:

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
