The most fucking depressing book ever. About a whole lot of folks in India who come together and struggle with the everyday reality of balancing hope and despair. Then they all die, or get castrated, or lose their legs, or commit suicide, or some other awful shit. Also full of really weird sexual stuff. Greta book though. Really.
Person 1: Dude I just read A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. I cried my eyes out at the end dude. So touching.
