The Brown Book Club will meet on Sunday, May 20 to discuss The God of Small Things: A Novel by Arundhati Roy (fiction, 338 pp,  2008).   We’ll begin at 6pm with dinner, then go on to discussion.  Please RSVP by Friday, May 18 by contacting the event organizer, who will provide location information. Mention any food allergies, and bring $6 – $8 for the meal.

“With sensuous prose, a dreamlike style infused with breathtakingly beautiful images and keen insight into human nature, Roy’s debut novel charts fresh territory in the genre of magical, prismatic literature. Set in Kerala, India, during the late 1960s when Communism rattled the age-old caste system, this ‘piercing study of childhood innocence lost’ mirrors the growing pains of modern India. Twin sister and brother Rahel and Estha are at the center of a family in crisis and at the heart of this ‘moving and compactly written book.'”
