The God of Small Things
BeschreibungArundhati Roy's phenomenal debut novel, now in paperback, which beat the favourites to the 1997 Booker Prize, and emerged as something of a surprise winner. A witty and magical piece of work, it describes the lives of two twins growing up in a factory in Kerala, southern India amidst an extended and chaotically dysfunctional family. "Like a devotionally built temple, "The God Of Small Things" builds a massive, interlocking structure of fine, intensely felt details." John Updike, "New Yorker". Roy has intimated that this may be her first and last novel.
PortraitArundhati Roy is an award-winning film-maker and a trained architect. The God of Small Things is her first novel.
Pressestimmen'In part a perfectly paced mystery story, in part an Indian Wuthering Heights: a gorgeous and seductive fever dream of a novel, and a truly spectacular debut.' Kirkus 'The God of Small Things genuinely is a masterpiece, utterly exceptional in every way, and there can be little doubt that posterity will place it very near the top of any shortlist of Indian novels published this century.' William Dalyrmple, Harpers and Queen. '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 to its agonizing finish... it evokes in the reader a feeling of gratitude and wonderment.' New York Times
