A fine balance

Set in India, Rohinton Mistry’s novel is the story of three villagers attempting to construct new lives in the city, haunted by the places they left behind. The cover is clean and simple, summing up the natural, mystical and spiritual feel of the novel. In using black and white and clay-brown Pentagram has created an “ethnic” look. An image of a small child at the top of a pole balanced on someone’s thumb is indeed “a fine balance”. Published by Faber and Faber, priced 15.99.
