The international publishing sensation of 1997 -- translated into 18 languages -- a magical, sophisticated tour de force.The God of Small Things heralds a voice so powerful and original that it burns itself into the reader's memory. Set mainly in Kerala, India, in 1969, it is the story of Rahel and her twin brother Estha, who learn that their whole world can change in a single day, that love and life can be lost in a moment. Armed only with the invincible innocence of children, they seek to craft a childhood for themselves amid the wreckage that constitutes their family. Sweet and heartbreaking, ribald and profound, this is a novel to set beside those of Salman Rushdie and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.From the Trade Paperback edition.

Immersive. Like the Meenachal river that connects the Heart of Darkness to the Ayemenem house. Claiming lives, breaking bodies, silent, quiet and deadly. Unfathomable depths fractured through the eyes of children scarred forever. A narrative to match. And still, stark beauty.
