Sample of The God of Small Things

  1. The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World
    Anyone who knows anything about Latin American novels likes to say that Allende’s novel is like a feminist form of magical realism, the literary style that Gabriel Garcia Marquez made famous in his epic novel 100 Years of Solitude. Here’s an introduction to a short story of his that’s marked by his trademark style.

  2. The God of Small Things
    “Magical realism” has also been used to describe the style of the Indian author Arundhati Roy and her award-winning novel The God of Small Things. Her writing can provide a neat comparison to Allende’s novel.
