The God of Small Things (1997) is a first book of Arundhati Roy. It is a story about the childhood experiences of a pair of fratemal twins who become victims of circumstance. The book is a description of how the small things in life build up, translate into people's behavior and affect their lives. The book won the Booker prize in 1997. One of the chapters in the book is also called "The God of small things".

The book took four years to write. The potential of the story was first recognized by Pankaj Mishra, an editor with Harper Collins, who sent it to three British publishers. Roy received half-a-million pounds in advances, and rights to the book were sold in 21 countries.
