This chapter introduces Rohinton Mistry, an Indian author whose work presents a repeated image of various kinds of journeys. It first presents some background information on his childhood and education in Bombay, India, showing that he became a writer almost by accident, and then identifies his sources of inspiration, including his Zoroastrian faith and childhood experiences. The chapter also addresses the controversy over the perceived privileging of Indian writing in English, and Mistry's current place in Canadian literature.
