From the Back Cover:
Tales from Firozsha Baag gives us a richly textured mosaic of lives as we meet those people who inhabit the Bombay apartment complex called Firozsha Baag. In a series of eleven intersecting stories, we are given access to many lives, family by family, story by story, one resonant incident after another, until we begin to see how they connect and overlap. Whether in Bombay or in their new home in Canada, the characters illuminate the tensions between the old world and the new.
Originally published in 1987, Tales from Firozsha Baag is Rohinton Mistry’s compelling first book.
