    Set in Bombay in the mid-1990s, "Family Matters "tells a story of familial love and obligation, of personal and political corruption, of the demands of tradition and the possibilities for compassion. Nariman Vakeel, the patriarch of a small discordant family, is beset by Parkinson's and haunted by memories of his past. He lives with his two middle-aged stepchildren, Coomy, bitter and domineering, and her brother, Jal, mild-mannered and acquiescent. But the burden of the illness worsens the already strained family ... Show more

A great read

by Booboo on Apr 1, 2007

Rohinton Mistry draws you into the world of a family with a stepfather and half-siblings. The patriarch is an older man, sick with Parkinson's; he winds up breaking his ankle. The story deals with who should take on the responsibility of the father. It's a story that hits home with me, as a baby boomer. I found it to be a book that's hard to put down.
