Editorial Reviews

Review

“Dazzling . . . as subtle as it is powerful.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
 
“[
The God of Small Things] offers such magic, mystery, and sadness that, literally, this reader turned the last page and decided to reread it. Immediately. It’s that haunting.”USA Today
 
“The quality of Ms. Roy’s narration is so extraordinary—at once so morally strenuous and so imaginatively supple—that the reader remains enthralled all the way through.”
The New York Times Book Review
 
“A novel of real ambition must invent its own language, and this one does.”
—John Updike, The New Yorker
 
“Outstanding. A glowing first novel.”
Newsweek
 
“Splendid and stunning.”
The Washington Post Book World
