No current Talk conversations about this book. Anyway… I completely agree that sometimes the shorter tales can pack a lot of punch—sometimes more than a full length novel. Sign up for LibraryThing to find out whether you’ll like this book. An old man shares his thoughts and feelings about the people and things around him.

No trivia or quizzes yet. This is the first book by Rohinton Mistry that I have read rohknton I really liked his writing style. I too see him as the patriarch of Family Matters Set in a Bombay apartment, The Scream is narrated by a man at the end of his life, who is angry at the predicament of old age, at his isolation from his family and from a world that no rohingon understands him.


He rails and raves in ways that are both hilarious and moving, and which touch us with recognition. And what a gem it is. Trish, he is fairly recognized in the US too.

The Scream

He believes, for example, that they put ice on the cement ledge where he likes to sit, making it even colder and more uncomfortable for him. Sorry, your blog cannot scresm posts by email. Preview — The Scream by Rohinton Mistry. This one sounds worth reading as well—and what a worthy cause! I found his rohinnton hard to believe and almost asked, Thomas-like, to see his scar, but his story did make me wonder about negotiating with death.

Refresh and try again.

This little book was printed as a limited edition for the fund raising effort of World Literacy of Canada. It takes a legend to move his audience in such a limited number of pages, and I had no doubt about RM’s abilities when I picked ‘The Scream’ up.


Printed originally in a limited edition of copies that was sold exclusively by World Literacy of Canada as a fundraiser for their organization, The Scream was exquisitely produced and featured original artwork by the celebrated Canadian artist Tony Urquhart.

The Scream, by Rohinton Mistry

I think it is a shame that so many Canadian authors are underrecognized in the US. Mistry won the prestigious Neustadt International Prize for Literature in Amazon Music Stream millions of songs.

I loved the small details of daily life, such screqm the description of the chanavala selling gram and peanuts, with his tin can of spices. The last line is perfect. The illustrations portray the story beautifully.

It’s sitting on my shelf – just waiting. I had to look up at least 10 words. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. This little book is also illustrated by rohimton celebrated Canadian artist, Tony Urquhart. Hardcover48 pages.
