Staff Reviews


This novel is not like The God of Small Things. It sprawls far beyond small Kerala. We encounter Kashmir and Dehli and the Dandakaranya Forest. I found myself jotting down names and places and events to look up to learn more about. And when I was finished, I read all of the nonfiction Roy has published in the 20 years between her two novels. So much of what she has written about makes its way into these pages. And, this novel is like The God of Small Things in the richness of language and the frequent perfect and unexpected details. This is like The God of Small Things in the aliveness and variety of characters herein.
