A Fine Balance

Winner of the Giller Prize 1995 and the Commonwealth Writers Prize 1996, Best Book

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.
