The God of Small Things

ebook
The beloved debut novel about an affluent Indian family forever changed by one fateful day in 1969, from the author of The Ministry of Utmost Happiness
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
  • MAN BOOKER PRIZE WINNER
    Compared favorably to the works of Faulkner and Dickens, Arundhati Roy's modern classic is equal parts powerful family saga, forbidden love story, and piercing political drama. The seven-year-old twins Estha and Rahel see their world shaken irrevocably by the arrival of their beautiful young cousin, Sophie. It is an event that will lead to an illicit liaison and tragedies accidental and intentional, exposing "big things [that] lurk unsaid" in a country drifting dangerously toward unrest. Lush, lyrical, and unnerving, The God of Small Things is an award-winning landmark that started for its author an esteemed career of fiction and political commentary that continues unabated.
    Praise for The God of Small Things
    "Dazzling . . . as subtle as it is powerful."—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
    "[The God of Small Things] offers such magic, mystery, and sadness that, literally, this reader turned the last page and decided to reread it. Immediately. It's that haunting."USA Today
    "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."The New York Times Book Review
    "A novel of real ambition must invent its own language, and this one does."—John Updike, The New Yorker
    "Outstanding. A glowing first novel."Newsweek
    "Splendid and stunning."The Washington Post Book World
