Some brief overview of this book

The setting is Bombay, mid-1990s. Nariman Vakeel, suffering from Parkinsons disease, is the elderly patriarch of a small, discordant family. In a building called Chateau Felicity, he and his two middle-aged stepchildren - Coomy, bitter and domineering, and her just-younger brother, Jal, mild mannered and acquiescent - occupy a once-elegant apartment whose ruin is progressing as rapidly as Narimans disease. Coomy has rules to govern every aspect of Narimans shrunken life, but even she cannot keep him from his evening walks. When he stumbles and breaks an ankle (fulfilling one of Coomys nagging prophecies), she has hardly said I told you so before she is plotting to turn his round-the-clock care over to her younger, sweet-tempered half sister. Roxana, her husband, and their two sons live in an already overcrowded apartment, but Coomy knows that Roxana will not refuse her. What Coomy cannot know is that she has set in motion a great unraveling (and an unexpected repair) of the family - and a revelation of its deeply love-torn past.

Shortlisted for the 2002 Booker Prize.
