The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

  • Kate's House

    Will send address to RSVP's, Baltimore, MD (map)

  • As you may have guessed the book selection for this month is The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy. A brief description from Amazon:

    "Compared favorably to the works of Faulkner and Dickens, Arundhati Roy’s debut novel is a modern classic that has been read and loved worldwide. Equal parts powerful family saga, forbidden love story, and piercing political drama, it is the story of an affluent Indian family forever changed by one fateful day in 1969. The seven-year-old twins Estha and Rahel see their world shaken irrevocably by the arrival of their beautiful young cousin, Sophie. It is an event that will lead to an illicit liaison and tragedies accidental and intentional, exposing “big things [that] lurk unsaid” in a country drifting dangerously toward unrest. Lush, lyrical, and unnerving, The God of Small Things is an award-winning landmark that started for its author an esteemed career of fiction and political commentary that continues unabated."

    As was discussed at the meeting last night, we will be meeting on the 2nd Monday of every month with members of the group taking turns hosting. I will be hosting the first one at my house this month in downtown Baltimore City. Address and parking details will follow.

    Thanks everyone and happy reading!

    So, the weather today was seriously frightful. I'm not sure how much better it will be by tomorrow night. I am absolutely fine to host but wondering if people want to postpone?

    My apologies, I will not make it on Monday- my son is paying me an unexpected visit. Looking forward to the next book though.

    Sorry I can't make it after all. I'm in the Philippines for work and won't be back in time. Have fun!

    Unfortunately I work until between 7 and 8pm on week days so I will likely exit the group. Was looking forward to meeting you all! Enjoy the book. :)

    Did the meetings change from 1st Monday each month to 2nd? I left early but I thought it was the 1st Monday.

      Hi there! Yes it changed to the 2nd Monday shortly after you left. Will that still work for you?
