Swimming Lessons and Other Stories from Firozsha Baag by Rohinton Mistry

This book reminded me of the ordinary but great characters in Cannery Row by John Steinbeck. It is a book of short stories about people living in a Parsi apartment building. In both books very ordinary people display very interesting behavior, beliefs and quirks; the writing is very fun. I also think I learned a little about Parsi culture. If you like John Steinbeck I think you'll love this book.
