About this title


1. The Tradition of Committed Writing 2. Arundhati Roy: The Voice for Small Things 3. The Women in the Novel 4. The Children in the Novel 5. The Downtrodden in the Novel 6. The Environment in the Novel Conclusion Bibliography


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.
