About this title

Synopsis:

THE BRILLIANTLY PLOTTED STORY UNCOILS WITH AN AGONIZING SENSE OF FOREBODING AND INEVITABILITY. YET NOTHING PREPARES YOU FOR WHAT LIES AT THE HEART OF IT. THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS TAKES ON THE BIG THEMES-LOVE. MADNESS. HOPE. INFINTE JOY. HERE IS A WRITER WHO DARES TO BREAK THE RULES. TO DISCLOSE RECEIVED RHYTHMS AND CREATE THE LANGUAGE SHE REQUIRES, A LANGUAGE THAT IS AT ONCE CLASSICAL AND UNPRECEDENTED. ARUNDHATI ROY HAS GIVEN US A BOOK THAT IS ANCHORED TO ANGUISH, BUT FUELED BY WIT AND MAIC.

Review:

In her first novel, award-winning Indian screenwriter Arundhati Roy conjures a whoosh of wordplay that rises from the pages like a brilliant jazz improvisation. The God of Small Things is nominally the story of young twins Rahel and Estha and the rest of their family, but the book feels like a million stories spinning out indefinitely; it is the product of a genius child-mind that takes everything in and transforms it in an alchemy of poetry. The God of Small Things is at once exotic and familiar to the Western reader, written in an English that's completely new and invigorated by the Asian Indian influences of culture and language.
