A story about "The God of Small Things" — 1 year ago
Read Arundhati Roy’s debut novel shortly after it was published, was still in secondary/high school then – and came away not fancying the read.
Changed my mind about her writing when I stumbled upon her essays in university as an undergraduate and grew to love her deliciously, sharp wit as an essay-writer and activist full of heart. Her mindblowing “End of Imagination” (available online, too) is a case in point. :)
Am rereading her novel again, as course material for my upcoming graduate module – and I catch myself revising my earlier impressions of it. Been good, by far! :)
