'Richly deserving the rapturous praise it has received on both sides of the Atlantic . . . The God of Small Things achieves genuine tragic resonance. It is indeed a masterpiece' - Observer

Still, to say that it all began when Sophie Mol came to Ayemenem is only one way of looking at it . . .

It could be argued that it actually began thousands of years ago. Long before the Marxists came. Before the British took Malabar, before the Dutch Ascendancy, before Vasco da Gama arrived, before the Zamorin's conquest of Calicut. Before Christianity arrived in a boat and seeped into Kerala like tea from a teabag. That it really began in the days when the Love Laws were made. The laws that lay down who should be loved, and how. And how much.

A novel of real ambition must invest in its own language, and this one doesThe joy of The God of Small Things is that it appeals equally to the head and the heart. It is clever and complex, yet it also makes one laugh, and finally, moves one to tears . . . Roy writes [with] a fecund, teeming visuality that is entirely her own. A masterpiece, utterly exceptional.Richly deserving the rapturous praise it has received on both sides of the Atlantic . . . The God of Small Things achieves genuine tragic resonance. It is indeed a masterpieceIt is rare to find a book that so effectively cuts through the clothes of nationality, caste and religion to reveal the bare bones of humanity. A sensational novelA banquet for all the senses we bring to readingA sad story, told very hilariously, very tenderly and very craftilyA compelling story which somehow marries the deepest, smallest personal emotions with an epic narrative
