FAMILY MATTERS BY ROHINTON MISTRY FREE PDF

Gary M. Kramer "Family Matters" by Rohinton Mistry From the author of "A Fine Balance," a Dickensian story of a Bombay family whose members battle society to gain true love and worldly success. In India, however -- a country hurling toward modernity while remaining bound to communal orthodoxies -- the clashes and struggles that have fed much of the best classic literature are still roiling, resulting in terrible pain and wonderful books. More than a year after reading it, I still lose my composure thinking of its ending. Mistry writes with an enveloping, heart-tearing compassion, and much of the novel feels almost whimsical, as isolated people make soulful alliances and subtle acts of kindness counterbalance hellish violence.

Gary M. Kramer "Family Matters" by Rohinton Mistry From the author of "A Fine Balance," a Dickensian story of a Bombay family whose members battle society to gain true love and worldly success. In India, however -- a country hurling toward modernity while remaining bound to communal orthodoxies -- the clashes and struggles that have fed much of the best classic literature are still roiling, resulting in terrible pain and wonderful books.

More than a year after reading it, I still lose my composure thinking of its ending. Mistry writes with an enveloping, heart-tearing compassion, and much of the novel feels almost whimsical, as isolated people make soulful alliances and subtle acts of kindness counterbalance hellish violence.

But in the end, goodness is no match for political furies. As the book begins, retired professor Nariman Vakeel lives with his unmarried middle-aged stepchildren, the shrill, overbearing Coomy and her timid brother, Jal.

As a young man, Nariman had loved a Goan Christian woman named Lucy, but his orthodox Parsi father fought the match, and after 11 years, Nariman gave in to family pressure and married the widowed Yasmin. His feelings for Lucy never left him, earning him the hatred of his new family and the guilt of seeing both his wife and his beloved destroyed. Mistry spares the reader nothing, detailing episodes of incontinence, the indignity of bedpans, all the draining tasks of attending to a helpless, deteriorating man.

But Lucy on the footpath brought back the past with a force that left him shaken Lucy, standing motionless, her face turned towards his window, had accomplished what he had dreaded -- filled him with a torrent of memories from their early days together. Not all of "Family Matters" works so well. Advertisement: Michelle Goldberg.
