When Arundhati Roy’s debut novel, The God of Small Things, was published in 1997, it was awarded the prestigious Booker Prize, became an international bestseller, and is now considered a classic of modern literature. Roy comes to CHF to discuss her richly moving second novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, which transports us across a subcontinent on a journey of many years. Humane and sensuous, beautifully told, this extraordinary novel demonstrates on every page the miracle of Arundhati Roy’s storytelling gifts.
