With the publication of The God of Small Things Arundhati Roy burst upon the literary stage like a nine-day wonder. Now that the media hype has subsided and the dust of critical acclaim has settled down, we are in a proper position to evaluate objectively her fictional world and art from various angles.
The essays contained in the present volume thrash threadbare various issues pertaining to Roy’s debut novel from diverse theoretical positions such as anthropology, culture studies, feminism, aucitya (Propriety), postmodernism, Marxist criticism and so on, and also throw significant light on recurrent themes, the role played by memory, Roy’s attempts to prettify the small, the question of marginality, artistic technique and stylistic features and her position as a novelist vis-à-vis Salman Rushdie.
