An enjoyable book about the lives of a group of people living in an apartment building in Bombay. Particularly interesting because it revolves around a Parsi community, a small minority (and therefore less written-about)in India. I recommend it if you enjoy Indian authors!

Another excellent novel by Umrigar. The characters of a small Parsi community are deep and rich with emotion and color. Living as foreigners in their own country brings trials and a sense of a larger family. I always enjoy this author.

I love Thritty Umrigar's writing! Her novels are moving and intriguing. Bombay Time tells the stories of multiple families living in an apartment complex. Their lives are interspersed with live, tragedy, hurts, gossip, and caring. I would strongly recommend any of her books (I have read them all).

A really interesting book about a community of the Zoroastrian faith. The ending is quite worth the slow parts in the story line.
