The God of Small Things - new book


ID: 438327744

?They all broke the rules. They all crossed into forbidden territory. They all tampered with the laws that lay down who should be loved, and how. And how much.?This is the story of Rahel and Estha, twins growing up among the banana vats and peppercorns of their blind grandmother?s factory, and amid scenes of political turbulence in Kerala. Armed only with the innocence of youth, they fashion a childhood in the shade of the wreck that is their family: their lonely, lovely mother, their beloved Uncle Chacko (pickle baron, radical Marxist, bottom-pincher) and their sworn enemy, Baby Kochamma (ex-nun, incumbent grand-aunt).Arundhati Roy?s Booker Prize-winning novel was the literary sensation of the 1990s: a story anchored to anguish but fuelled by wit and magic.Reviews?Richly deserving the rapturous praise it has received on both sides of the Atlantic??The God of Small Things? achieves a genuine tragic resonance. It is, indeed, a masterpiece.? Observer?Roy is truly gifted, not just in her ability to make words playful and meaning mischievous, but to use this to create a language texture that bowls you along, gathering momentum like the narrative itself?Witty and vivid, full of rich, memorable images?a verbal stream of steady beauty.? Ali Smith?It 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 novel.? Daily Telegraph?A quite astonishing novel by any standards ? broad in its historical sweep, emotionally profound and marvellously acute and delicate.? Economist?Quite brilliant?One can only strongly recommend this extremely funny and enchanting and pretty much genius piece of debut fiction.? SpectatorAbout the authorArundhati Roy is an award-winning filmmaker and a trained architect. In 1997 she won the Booker Prize for ?The God of Small Things?. She lives in New Delhi., 1998

Arundhati Roy, Diana Quick, HarperCollins Publishers Limited:

The God of Small Things - new book

[SR: 6238], Audio Download, Abridged, HarperCollins Publishers Limited, HarperCollins Publishers Limited, Audible, [PU: HarperCollins Publishers Limited], HarperCollins Publishers Limited, Winner of the 1997 Booker Prize. The richly exotic story of the childhood the twins Esthappen and Rahel craft for themselves amongst India's vats of banana jam and mountains of peppercorns. Now available for the first time on audio download. More magical than Mistry, more of a rollicking good read than Rushdie, more nerve-tingling imagined than Naipaul, here, perhaps, is the greatest Indian novel by a woman. Arundhati Roy has written an astonishingly rich, fertile novel, teeming with life, colour, heart-stopping language, wry comedy and a hint of magical realism. Set against a background of political turbulence in Kerala, Southern India, The God of Small Things tells the story of twins Esthappen and Rahel. Amongst the vats of banana jam and heaps of peppercorns in their grandmother's factory, they try to craft a childhood for themselves amidst what constitutes their family: their lonely, lovely mother; their beloved Uncle Chacko (pickle baron, radical Marxist, and bottom-pincher); and their avowed enemy, Baby Kochamma (ex-nun and incumbent grand-aunt)., 590756, Contemporary Fiction, 62, Fiction, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 341678031, Categories, 341686031, Amazon Devices, 341687031, Amazon Device Accessories, 341689031, Kindle eBooks, 341690031, Kindle Magazines & Journals, 341691031, Kindle Newspapers, 341688031, Kindle Blogs, 341677031, Kindle Store
