Family Matters

Nariman Vakeel is a seventy-nine-year-old Parsi widower beset by Parkinson's disease and haunted by memories of the past. He lives with his two middle-aged step-children. When Nariman's illness is compunded by a broken ankle, he's forced to take up residence with his daughter Roxana, her husband Yezad and their two young sons. This new responsibility for Yezad, who is already besieged by financial worries, proves too much and pushes him into a scheme of deception - with devastating consequences.Wise and compassionate, Family Matters has all the richness, the gentle humour and the narrative sweep that have earned Rohinton Mistry the highest accolades.'It is rare to discover a novel in which the characters are so well drawn that you feel wrapped up in their problems, rather than just privy to them.' Independent on Sunday 'A brilliant novel from one of India's finest living novelists.' Observer
