SO Very Literary Book Club - The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

SO Very Literary Book Club - The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

Compared favorably to the works of Faulkner and Dickens, Arundhati Roy’s modern classic is equal parts powerful family saga, forbidden love story, and piercing political drama. 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.


The SO Very Literary Book Club meets on the 3rd Thursday of every month from 2:00-3:30 pm.  
For 2024, we will be taking a trip around the world with selections that take place in countries near and far.
Everyone is welcome.  Come join us for a year of passionate book discussions!

Registration is appreciated.

Please stay at home if you or any member of your family are sick. Thank you

We look forward to seeing you!
