Thread and circuses
Performing in the spaces of city and nation in A Fine Balance
in Rohinton Mistry

This chapter focuses on A Fine Balance, a novel that further pursues the themes of political decline and personal moral responsibility. It notes that although these themes were previously addressed in Such a Long Journey, A Fine Balance, unlike its predecessor, addresses these them on an epic scale. The chapter shows that this novel tests the fabric of the nation through a group of characters caught up in the dangerous delirium of a paranoid political regime.
