A NovelBook - 2002
This novel takes us to Bombay in the mid-1990s. Nariman Vakeel is a seventy-nine-year-old Parsi widower and the patriarch of a small discordant family. Beset by Parkinson's disease and haunted by memories of the past, he lives in a once-elegant apartment with his two middle-aged stepchildren. When Nariman's illness is compounded by a broken ankle, the need for his round-the-clock care sets in motion a series of events that unravel and reveal the family's love-torn past.
