Fiction. These sardonic, wry stories set in Toronto and various parts of India describe the lives of immigrants — ordinary people whose lives may or may not be linked. Compassionate and playful too, they look at the paradoxical spaces in which ordinary people find themselves, and weave historical order in which to locate their characters within a larger universe. The characters in this collection include a disgruntled yoga teacher; a school custodian who has lost a winning lottery ticket; a young woman whose dentist may be touching her inappropriately; a disillusioned retiree obsessed by food, a chef dreaming of a chain of restaurants; a man who has turned away from religious fundamentalism.
