Walking on Sunshine

TBR – Arundhati Roy – The God of Small Things

The Back of the Book:The God of Small Things explores the tragic fate of a family which ‘tampered with the laws that lay down who should be loved, and how.’  The are an eclectic mix:  grandmother Mammachi; her spoilt Anglophile son, Chacko; her daughter Ammu; Ammu’s inseparable twins Estha and Rachel; and Baby Kochamma, a grand-aunt, determined to sread the bitter seeds of her early disappointment in love.  From its mesmerising opening sequence, it is clear that we are in the grip of a delicious new voice … a voice of breathtaking beauty.  The God of Small Things achieves genuine, tragic resonance.  It is, indeed, a masterpiece.’  Christina Patterson, Observer
