The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

A modern classic first released in 1997, this Man Booker prizewinner and New York Times best seller may have escaped your attention. It’s a worthy place to start, and, like your first trip to India, reading The God of Small Things will leave you craving more. 

The novel is equal parts powerful family saga, forbidden love story, and piercing political drama. Seven-year-old twins Estha and Rahel see their world shaken irrevocably by the arrival of their beautiful young cousin, Sophie. It is an event that will lead to an illicit liaison and tragedies accidental and intentional, exposing “big things [that] lurk unsaid” in a country drifting dangerously toward unrest. Lush, lyrical, and unnerving, The God of Small Things is an award-winning landmark that started for its author an esteemed career of fiction and political commentary that continues unabated.
