The 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. — William Dalrymple,
Harpers and Queen

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,

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 banquet for all the senses we bring to reading,

A sad story, told very hilariously, very tenderly and very craftily,

A compelling story which somehow marries the deepest, smallest personal emotions with an epic narrative,
Sunday Express
