A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth is wonderful, but even better is A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. Marg
Oh, thanks Marg. Will check it out.
The Hungry Tide by Amitav Ghosh is beautiful, Barb. I must find time to read his latest book River of Smoke.Hope you're writing is going well!
Thanks, Helene. The Hungry Tide is a fascinating title.Meant to say to Marg, that I started A Suitable Boy, but found it too depressing. Maybe I should have stuck with it. I loved Vikram Seth's An Equal Music.Oooh... so many books... Aren't we lucky?
I only know slightly depressing stores: The Jewel in the Crown and A Passage to India.
2paw, I read A Passage to India many years ago and loved it. I don't remember too many details though.I guess books written by Indians about their own country would be very different from those by an Englisman like EM Forster. Or perhaps not. I'll have to find out.
