From the Back Cover:

In Rohinton Mistry’s first novel, SUCH A LONG JOURNEY, Gustad Noble, a dedicated and somewhat innocent bank clerk, finds his familial life and his professional life unravelling as his son rejects filial piety, his best friend involves him in political intrigue, and his own rationality and morality confront a world of change.

Set in 1971 Bombay with its turbulent national politics complemented by worse tensions on the international scene, the novel teems with the life of its city and the many characters who populate Gustad Noble’s fascinating world.

Winner of the Governor General’s Award for Fiction and the Commonwealth Writers Prize, and short-listed for the Booker Prize, SUCH A LONG JOURNEY is one of the most acclaimed [books] of our time.
