The God of Small Things Chapter 15 Summary

The Crossing

  • It's after midnight and it's raining.
  • A young man sits at the top of a staircase leading to the river.
  • He strips down and swims across the river to the middle, where the current is swift.
  • He gets to the other side.
  • He thinks things will get worse and then better. Then he walks towards the Heart of Darkness.
  • The narrator describes him as "The God of Loss. The God of Small Things. Naked but for his nail varnish" (15.8-10). So we know this man is Velutha.
