About the Book

Rohinton Mistry, the socio-political novelist, has emerged as a formidable writer on the world literary scene. As an Indian who now lives in and writes from Canada, he is a writer of the Indian Diaspora. He is by no means a prolific writer; he has published, within a span of ten years, only three works. His maiden Anthology of Short Stories Tales from Firozsha Baag (1987) was followed by a remarkable first novel Such a Long Journey (1991) which heralded his arrival as a gifted novelist. His latest novel A Fine Balance (1995) has received a worldwide acclaim, and is considered a landmark in the History of Indian fiction. No wonder, there has been a widespread growth of interest in his writings The relation between literature and life seems the object of increased attention in his writings; his novels are closely linked with the social and political background. Like Nayantara Sahgal, Salman Rushdie, Khushwant Singh and Shashi Tharoor, he is deeply involved with history. It is desirable therefore to analyze Mistry's fiction in order to understand the whole range of the novelist's use of history, which helps us to see how it impinges on the nature and scope of his fictional style. One further discovers that history-fiction interface, practised by Mistry, is fascinating and culturally significant. The present volume, edited by eminent scholar Jaydipsinh Dodiya, represents a wide spectrum of critical responses to Mistry's fiction. The contributors to the volume comprise an august group of scholars and academics of international repute.
