Description

This is the story of Rahel and Estha, twins growing up among the banana vats and peppercorns of their blind grandmother’s factory; amid scenes of political turbulence in Kerala. Armed only with the innocence of youth, they fashion a childhood in the shade of the wreck that is their family: their lonely, lovely mother, their beloved Uncle Chacko (pickle baron, radical Marxist, bottom-pincher) and their sworn enemy, Baby Kochamma (ex-nun, incumbent grand-aunt).

Professional reviews

"Arundhati Roy’s Booker Prize-winning novel was the literary sensation of the 1990s: a story anchored to anguish but fuelled by wit and magic. “Richly deserving the rapturous praise it has received on both sides of the Atlantic. […] The God of Small Things achieves a genuine tragic resonance. It is, indeed, a masterpiece.” OBSERVER “Witty and vivid, full of rich, memorable images […] a verbal stream of steady beauty.” ALI SMITH"
