O Canada! The Best Canadian Books ~ A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry

A Fine Balance is an excellent novel which allowed me to see inside a culture I would never have the ability to experience. When this happens, I truly believe we learn a little more about our neighbours around the world . . . allowing us to understand each other a little better.

The book was recommended as one of 100 novels that make you proud to be Canadian, compiled by CBCbooks.ca. It is also on the O Canada! The Best Canadian Books list.



The story is about four very different people, a widow, a young student, and two tailors, who come together during a turbulent time in India of the 1970s and discover friendship and love despite the extreme sadness and instability of the times they are living in.

It is a very sad and emotional book but I bet you will read it a second time.
