Teaser Tuesday: The God of Small Things
"In that brief moment, Velutha looked up and saw things that he hadn't seen before. Things that had been out of bounds so far, obscured by history's blinkers. Small things." p - 176, The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
Description: 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.
I've wanted and waited to read this book for SO long. I'm so glad I picked it up this week.
