Arundhati Roy tells a story by transfixing us to the soul of the characters and makes Ayemenem, on the banks of Minachal river, sizzle with life and its cruel ironies.

The story spans three generations of a Christian family from Kerala. A touchable upper caste as opposed to an untouchable one. Plantations, pickle factories andNaxalities form the background for this sad-funny scenario. The rain, humidity and the heat come alive as incidents are recalled, all small parts of a larger fabricrelation to love and anger.

Roy deftly weaves the saga of the family that lives in the Ayemenem House in Kottayam, a saga, microscoped in time, which irreversiblymoves towards its doomed destiny. The book boasts of the fluttering wings of Arundhati's jet-engined English prose which pitchforks that small state which houses a big world, into the centerstage of the literary world.
