The November Readers' Review panel discusses Arundhati Roy's Booker Prize-winning novel, "The God of Small Things." Set in the author's native India, the story focuses on a twin brother and sister, and how their lives are irrevocably altered by the actions of adults in their world, whose lives are marked by thwarted love, fear, and rebellion against the caste system, all under the influence of events beyond their control.
