Arundhati Roy is an Indian writer from New Delhi who gained international fame with the publication of “The God of Small Things,” published in 1997. The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, published this year, is her only other fiction book since, and it definitely feels like 20 years in the making.
The Ministry of Utmost Happiness is a novel of maddeningly frayed edges, wonky pacing, and occasional longueurs. But its patchwork of narratives, painful, funny, sexy, violent, earthy, otherworldly, its recurring images of lost and recovered children, individual sacrifice and self-denial, and its depiction of the constant battle toward self-assertion in a society still held in thrall to the taxonomy of caste and class, make for a disturbing and memorable return to the land of make-believe.
