The God of Small Things (1997)
By Arundhati Roy


In this semi-autobiographical story set in India, fraternal twins Rahel and Estha become victims of circumstance. Roy portrays family tragedy and drama, cultural expectations and restrictions, and politics through the unguarded, innocent observation of children.

Fun Fact: The title The God of Small Things refers to the character Velutha, a family handyman.

Next: Amsterdam (1998)
By Ian McEwan
