I followed up “A Fine Balance” with another Mistry novel. This one does not span several years and keeps the story simply confined to one family. But Mistry ,covers a lot of ground in describing the struggles within one family. As their father is withering away the children fight amongst themselves and bring up old memories and old grievances. The story here also explains the struggles of middle-class Indians trying to do the right thing in Bombay.
This story is worth reading though not as good as “A Fine Balance”.
