    In the India of the mid-1970s, Indira Gandhi's government has just come to power. It institutionalizes corruption and arbitrary force, most oppressive to the poorest and weakest people under its sway. Against this backdrop, in an unnamed city by the sea, four people struggle to survive. Dina, Maneck, and two tailors, the Untouchables Om and Ishvar, who are sewing in Dina's service, undergo a series of reversals.

    One of the most talked-about books of the year, A Fine Balance captures all the cruelty and corruption, dignity and heroism, of India in 1975. It is an Oprah Book Club selection, and has won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in fiction, the Giller Prize, and the Commonwealth Writers Prize. Mistry "needs no infusion of magic realism to vivify the real. The real world, through his eyes, is magical," says The New York Times.

    Man schreibt das Jahr 1975. Der Ort: Bombay. Hier treffen vier Menschen aufeinander, deren Schicksale im Mittelpunkt des Romans stehen. Dina Dalal, eine Frau Anfang Vierzig und seit fast zwanzig Jahren verwitwet; Maneck Kohlah, ein junger Student aus dem Gebiet des Himalajas; Ishvar Darji, ein unglaublicher Optimist, und sein widerspenstiger junger Neffe Omprakash - zwei Schneider, die vor den unerträglichen Verhältnissen auf dem Land in die Stadt geflohen sind.
