Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

"Offers such magic, mystery and sadness that, literally, this reader turned the last page and decided to reread it. Immediately. It's that hauntingly wonderful."
-- USA Today
"Outstanding. A glowing first novel."
-- Newsweek
"A splendid and stunning debut."
-- Washington Post Book World
"A novel of real ambition must invent its own language, and this one does.... A Tiger Woodsian debut."
-- John Updike, The New Yorker
"The quality of Ms. Roy's narration is so extraordinary -- at once so morally strenuous and so imaginatively supple -- that the reader remains enthralled all the way through."
-- New York Times Book Review


Review:

"[S]ome of Roy's finest touches spring from her skill at registering the unsayable terrors lodged below the surface of everyday things, in particular, the terrors which take hold of the children....'The God of Small Things' is a cleverly crafted, often witty and moving first novel by a talented new writer."

Shirley Chew, Times Literary Supplement, 05/30/1997

Review:

"A rarity in post-colonial fiction: a largely-conceived and ambitious book about private life."

Michael Gorra, London Review of Books, 06/19/1997
