    DescriptionSet in the mid-1970s in India, "A Fine Balance" tells the story of four unlikely people whose lives come together during a time of political turmoil soon after the government declares a 'State of Internal Emergency'. Through days of bleakness and hope, their circumstances - and their fates - become inextricably linked in ways no one could have foreseen. Written with compassion, humour and insight, "A Fine Balance" is a vivid, richly textured and powerful novel by one of the most gifted writers of our time. 'A masterpiece of illumination and grace. Like all great fiction, it transforms our understanding of life.' - "Guardian."
