This is an auction for TALES FROM FIROZSHA BAAG by Rohinton Mistry. review:

"The collection of short stories recounts the lives of different people in Firozsha Baag - a Parsi Colony in Mumbai. The Stories are rich in imagery that reminds one of Mumbai and offers insights into the life and lives of the parsi community. The stories are different, well narrated and some of them very profound in their message. The words are weighed and come from a thoughtful and observant person - someone who has reflected on the imagery of his youth to find meaning. Love the book, and the writing."

"This book is an excellent discussion on the human condition and its universal relevance. Rohinton Mistry weaves together the struggles of everyday life of an apartment complex in Bombay. As the book progresses, the universal problems of life becomes very clear...death, sorrow, poverty, superstition, and love. It describes the pertinence of existentialism in a quasi religious district. An excellent read for all those who wish to understand how human life progresses, and how it matters little where you live it. Touching and compassionate, and as historical fiction, a very compelling read!"
