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

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 206 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. The year is 1969. In the state of Kerala, on the southernmost tip of India, a skyblue Plymouth with chrome tailfins is stranded on the highway amid a Marxist workers demonstration. Inside the car sit two-egg twins Rahel and Esthappen, and so begins their tale. Armed only with the invincible innocence of children, they fashion a childhood for themselves in the shade of the wreck that is their family - their lonely, lovely mother, Ammu (who loves by night the man her children love by day), their blind grandmother, Mammachi (who plays Handel on her violin), their beloved uncle Chacko (Rhodes scholar, pickle baron, radical Marxist, bottom-pincher), their enemy, Baby Kochamma (ex-nun and incumbent grandaunt), and the ghost of an imperial entomologist s moth (with unusually dense dorsal tufts). When their English cousin, Sophie Mol, and her mother, Margaret Kochamma, arrive on a Christmas visit, Esthappen and Rahel learn that Things Can Change in a Day. That lives can twist into new, ugly shapes, even cease forever, beside their river graygreen. With fish in it. With the sky and trees in it. And at night, the broken yellow moon in it.
