WINNER OF THE 1997 BOOKER PRIZE FOR FICTION!!!! The year is 1969. On the Cochin highway a skyblue Plymouth with chrome tailfins is stranded in a workers' demonstration. Inside the car sit two-egg twins Rahel and Estha; and so begins their tale. They grow up between vats of banana jam and heaps of peppercorns in their blind grandmother Mammachi's factory. Armed only with the invincible innocence of children; they try to fashion a childhood in the shade of the wreck that is their family - their lonely; lovely mother Ammu (who loves by night the man her children love by day); their beloved uncle Chacko (Rhodes scholar; pickle baron; radical Marxist; bottom pincher); their enemy Baby Kochamma (ex-nun and incumbent grand-aunt); and the ghost of an imperial entomologist's moth. They learn that things can change in a day; lives can twist into new ugly shapes; even cease forever; beside their river; 'grey-green; with fish in it. With the sky ans trees in it. And at night the broken yellow moon in it.' The tale is buoyed up by life but has tragedy for its cargo.'
