The God of Small Things
Arundhati Roy

  • R 12000


Booker Prize Winner 1997. The story of Esta and Rahel, male and female dizygotic twins, who recall how their feared aunt forced the English language upon them; how, when the twins were seven they, were visited by nine-year-old Sophie Mol for a Christmas vacation; and how these events lead to taboo sex and appalling violence. Roy's love story owes something to Joyce, something to Faulkner and a great deal to Rushdie. Her prose is rich and effervescent, bursting with imagery and ideas.
