The God of Small Things

Arundhati Roy, Author Random House Inc (321p) ISBN 978-0-679-45731-2

"With sensuous prose, a dreamlike style infused with breathtakingly beautiful images and keen insight into human nature, Roy's debut novel charts fresh territory in the genre of magical, prismatic literature. Set in Kerala, India, during the late 1960s when Communism rattled the age-old caste system, the story begins with the funeral of young Sophie Mol, the cousin of the novel's protagonists, Rahel and her fraternal twin brother, Estha. In a circuitous and suspenseful narrative, Roy reveals the family tensions that led to the twins' behavior on the fateful night that Sophie drowned. Beneath the drama of a family tragedy lies a background of local politics, social taboos and the tide of history--all of which come together in a slip of fate, after which a family is irreparably shattered."

- This beautiful piece is quite a juxtaposition from our last read, so join us as we explore the classic that literally everyone that has seen what we're reading has said "OMG I LOOOOOOVED THAT BOOK."
