    Such a Long Journey is set in (what was then) Bombay against the backdrop of war in the Indian subcontinent and the birth of Bangladesh, telling the story of the peculiar way in which the conflict impinges on the lives of Gustad Noble, an ordinary man, and his family. It was the brilliant first novel by one of the most remarkable writers to have emerged from the Indian literary tradition in many years. It was shortlisted for the 1991 Booker Prize, and won the 1992 Commonwealth Writers Prize.

Reviews of Such a Long Journey

Pealing the onion

by DocMike on Jan 14, 2008

Starts slowly, develops steadily, 'Such a Long Journey' becomes more gripping as it moves along. Mr. Mistry's prose is engaging - the book is never boring and is often captivating. Set in India in the early 1970's, the characters are revealed as various personae are pealed back like an onion's layers. A good book to read in a book group - a brief review of the partitioning of India and of India's major religions would enhance the reading.
