There are only a few writers who can successfully tie together a huge narrative spanning several generations of large families in three countries with a compelling plot and theme. Vassanji tries, but somehow misses the mark. He does, however, write beautiful setting and character sketches. It's a decent story, just a little scattered and tedious at times.
