thirty-nine: journey

despite the many directions in which this post could go, i couldn’t get out of my head the book such a long journey (1991) by rohinton mistry…one of my favourite authors ever, though i can’t decide whether it’s my favourite of his books (also, no, i haven’t seen the film…scared it won’t hold up, though it does have a good dose of the amazing om puri. love that guy.)

i figure i’ve got mistry on the mind coz i am currently re-reading (for probably the 15th time!) his second novel a fine balance, which still holds the distinct honour of being the only book that i devoured and then re-read immediately after closing the back cover. it’s such a stunning book. beautiful, sad stories of humanity. strongly recommend.
