The God of Small Things by activist Arundhati Roy is a Booker Prize-winning classic, notable for its sensuous, lyrical prose. It is also a brilliant exploration of the impact of caste issues and a child’s death on a southern India family. Background details provided in class, discussion, and audio recordings will help readers appreciate the depth and beauty of this haunting novel, which Roy meant to be read as if one were peeling the layers of an onion.
