This month we are discussin The Crow Eaters by Bapsi Sidhwa

Seeking fortune and opportunity, Faredoon 'Freddy' Junglewalla and his family – his pregnant wife, infant daughter, and burdensome mother-in-law – move from their ancestral village in rural India to the bustling metropolis of Lahore. 

Welcomed by the small but tight-knit Parsi community, Freddy soon establishes a booming business and his family becomes revered and respected. But when tragedy forces Freddy to rethink his legacy, intimations of historic change loom on the country's horizon.

Wickedly funny and searingly honest, The Crow Eaters is a vibrant portrait of a Parsi family taking its place in colonial India on the brink of the 20th century.

We have chosen this book from the Big Jubilee Read list, celebrating books from around the world from each decade of the Queen’s reign.

All members welcome!
