Critical overview

This chapter summarises the six main channels of critical interest in Mistry's work, and then identifies and discusses the many criticisms of Mistry and his work. It includes readings of Mistry as a realist writer, and criticisms of the way the skein of surface realism is continuously interrupted by moments of fabulist allegory, pronounced modernist patterning and occasionally metafictional interventions. The chapter also tries to show that realism only accounts for an overall tendency within Mistry's work.
