Why should you read "The God of Small Things" by Arundhati Roy?
Set in a small town in India, "The God of Small Things" revolves around fraternal twins Rahel and Estha, who are separated for 23 years after the fateful hours in which their cousin drowns, their mother's affair is revealed, and her lover is murdered. The book is set at the point of the twins' reunion and confronts the social mores of India. Laura Wright dives into Arundhati Roy's masterful storytelling.
