Anonymous More than 1 year ago
These stories all take place in Bombay from early times when many were destitute and trying to live on meager earnings to modern times after the name had changed to Mumbai.  The local food is prominent in the stories as the titles show and I learned much about the Indian cuisine in Bombay. These are well-written stories and fast reading and the characters really come to life. You can feel their suffering, confusion, and personal loss. In each story, there is a life-changing event which leads to a very abrupt and depressing ending. I would have liked to have known more about what happened to each of the characters.
