Family Matters by Rohinton Mistry
Family Matters

Old KB, January 1, 2010

All my friends and I are at the time of our lives when our parents are aging and we are increasingly having to make decisions about how to care for them. Also many of us (and our children) are exploring what religion and spirituality mean. This book addresses all of these things and examines how families interact. It was the best book I have read this decade since it was so well written, humorous and meaningful as well as giving a view into life in India while being universally relevant. Highly recommended for any age but over 50s in particular and would also be good for discussion groups.
