Tender and funny, Manju Kapur's third novel is an engrossing story of family life amid the bustle and commerce of the Banwari Lal Cloth Shop.

When their traditional Delhi business -- selling saris is threatened by the new fashion for jeans and stitched salwar kameez, the whole family knows it must adapt to the world outside. But can it, when tensions at home are so strong? So begins a series of struggles -- to have children, to find education or illicit love, even to manufacture pickles -- that will see the family tested and, in the end, reaffirmed.

Very human and hugely engaging, Home is a tale of three generations -- a masterful novel of the acts of kindness, compromise and secrecy that lie at the heart of every family.
