"[Umrigar's] heartfelt book . . . displays an impressive talent for conceiving multidimensional, sympathetic characters with lifelike emotional quandaries and psychological stumbling blocks." --The Washington Post Book World "Umrigar's vivid and easy prose carries the reader into the heart of these families, limning their neighborhoods, their desires, their hopes, and failures." --Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel "Bombay throbs with the life and death, crowded, hot, dirty, and volatile . . . [This novel] is a warmhearted look at human nature, with all its strengths and flaws exposed." --The Cleveland Plain Dealer "Thrity Umrigar has an acute ear for dialogue, and a gift for unmasking the complexities of personal relationships. Wise and nuanced, the narrative grips the reader's attention." --Bapsi Sidhwa, author of Cracking India "With the unflinching gaze of a Diane Arbus prot�g�, Umrigar pulls each of [her characters] into and out of focus to reveal the definitive--at times profoundly intimate--events of their respective lives . . . [A] dazzling debut." --The Hartford Courant "Bombay Time's wonderful cast of characters and their tragically funny stories stay with you long after you finish reading this bittersweet novel. Thrity Umrigar's heart is as big as her homeland, and this is a beautiful novel." --Brad Watson, author of Last Days of the Dog-Men
