About the book:
Arundhati Roy’s debut novel is a modern classic that has been read and loved
worldwide. Equal parts powerful family saga, forbidden love story, and piercing political
drama, it is the story of an affluent Indian family forever changed by one fateful day in
1969. 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.
