The God of Small Things - Arundhati RoyFlamingo, 1997, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Top edges of DJ a little ruffled. Hinges straining at title page.
The God of Small Things is nominally the story of young twins Rahel and Estha and the rest of their family, but the book feels like a million stories spinning out indefinitely; it is the product of a genius child-mind that takes everything in and transforms it in an alchemy of poetry. The God of Small Things is at once exotic and familiar to the Western reader, written in an English that's completely new and invigorated by the Asian Indian influences of culture and language. 352pp.
