A remarkable novel of life in modern India, A Fine Balance takes place in 1975, when the Indian government has just declared a State of Emergency. As a result, four strangers -- a young student, a spirited widow, and two tailors who have fled the caste violence of their native village -- have been thrust together, forced to share a cramped apartment and an uncertain future. As the characters move from distrust to friendship to love, A Fine Balance creates an enduring panorama of the human spirit in an inhuman state.
