Bombay in the Age of Disco

By the early nineties, the economy of India had taken its first faltering steps toward liberalization, globalizationAEs reach had found and touched significant swathes of its society, the decades-long post-independence era of Nehru and Gandhi was finally and firmly over, and Bombay had become Mumbai. Bombay in the Age of Disco is a personal and historically powerful memoir, weaving together the experiences and aspirations of a young girl and her family with the dizzying sea of change that swept her city during her childhood and after she left. Tinaz Pavri recalls what Bombay taught her as a child and compares her memories to the changing, globalized nature of her hometown as it is today. This book is an up-close, personal account of IndiaAEs changing economy and social structure through the last several decades. Readers will be as enchanted with PavriAEs family, who range from hilarious but well-meaning to snarky and aloof, as they will be with the cityAEs fading yet regenerating charms.
