Rohinton Mistry is an eminent writer of the Indian Diaspora. Settled in Canada, he has emerged as a significant literary figure during the recent years. His very first novel Such a Long Journey received a wide acclaim and has been regarded as a landmark in the history of Indian Fiction. The novel, overtly socio-political, vividly depicts Bombay and the Parsi world. The present volume, the first of its kind, offers a critical and insightful commentary on this complex novel. This is followed by a series of articles by eminent scholars from India and abroad. The book, it is hoped, will make a rich contribution to the fast-growing corpus of Indian fiction and criticism.
