Reprint. Description based on print version record. Originally published: Markham, Ont.: Penguin, 1987; London: Faber, 1992.
In these eleven intersecting stories, Rohinton Mistry reveals the rich, complex patterns of life inside a Bombay apartment building. The occupants - from Jaakaylee, the ghost-seer, through Najami, the only owner of a refrigerator in Firozsha Baag, to Rustomji the Curmudgeon and Kersi, the boy whose life threads through the book - all express, knowingly or unknowingly, the tensions between the past and the present, between the old world and the new. Compassionate and extremely funny,Tales from Firozsha Baagilluminates the meaning of change through the brilliantly textured mosaic of seemingly ordinary lives. 'Mistry's joyful notation of the world reminds us that description is one of fiction's first and gravest tasks.'Guardian'A fine collection . . . the volume is informed by a tone of gentle compassion for seemingly insignificant lives.'New York Times
