About The Book In The God of Small Things: Booker Prize Winner 1997, Arundhati Roy paints a vivid picture of life in a rural town in India. in a magical and poetic way, she relates the thoughts and feelings of two small children, twins, as they navigate through the complexity and the hypocrisy of the adults in their life. Set in Kerela in the 1960s, The God of Small Things: Booker Prize Winner 1997 is about two children, Estha and Rahel and the shocking consequences of a pivotal event in their lives. The twins live among the banana vats and peppercorns of their blind grandmother's factory 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). Their peaceful, regular albeit less than perfect life is shaken by an unforeseeable event. The death of a visiting cousin from England by drowning changes their young lives forever. Written in a beautiful and lush prose, The God of Small Things is a poignant lesson on the destructive power of the caste system and moral and political bigotry in general. The book was published on May 2005, available in paperback. Key Features Booker Prize Winner in 1997. The author of the book Arundhati Roy has won the Sydney Peace Prize in 2004.
