Summary

In these eleven intersecting stories, Rohinton Mistry reveals the rich, complex patterns of life inside a Bombay apartment building. The occupants – from Jaakaylee, the ghost-seer, through Najami, the only owner of a refrigerator in Firozsha Baag, to Rustomji the Curmudgeon and Kersi, the boy whose life threads through the book – all express, knowingly or unknowingly, the tensions between the past and the present, between the old world and the new.

Compassionate and extremely funny, Tales from Firozsha Baag illuminates the meaning of change through the brilliantly textured mosaic of seemingly ordinary lives.
