Description

In this novel about workplace politics, outsourcing, and culture shock, author Roshni Hemraj Mudliar identifies the notion of "fair-weather people"-and demonstrates the danger they present. Henry believed everything would turn out all right. Transferred by his company from Ozo, his homeland, to the violence-filled country of Palzo, he was grateful to still have his health, his job, and his parents. But as Henry begins to experience the horrors of Palzo, he witnesses the rampant human suffering of a land that has lost all semblance of law and order. He and his acquaintances bear unspeakable horrors just to survive. Fair-Weather People presents a cast of Palzo citizens-all trying to live the best lives possible but many held back by their poverty, low caste, or gender. Henry's neighbor Bijli schemes to get out of a terrifying marriage and avenge her lost son. His manager, Jiten, tries to be an ethical boss in a difficult job. Fellow employee Garima faces unbelievable challenges as a working mother, and a young Palzo citizen, Dilshad, struggles to overcome a horrific family tragedy. In the course of their toils and heartbreak, these individuals find each other-and with that, the hope of a better future.show more
