Afternoon Literary Seminar: The God Of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

The God Of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
This lush, engaging novel invites readers in to the fascinating lives of one Indian family. The story toggles between the single day in 1969 when the entire family was upended by the mysterious event that keeps you madly turning pages—and 1993, when the main characters, fraternal twins, are reunited.
Roy won huge American acclaim, a Booker Prize and obscenity charges—always a good sign!— with this debut in 1997. Last year it was named one of the BBC’s 100 Most Influential Novels. Roy’s work is immersive and wide-in-scope, kind of like the very best John Irving crossed with Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Express.
