Arundhati Roy ebooks

Arundhati Roy is an Indian author and immensely active speaker against many different subjects that she believes to be unjust. She was born on November 24, 1961 in Shillong, Meghalaya, India. After completing her general studies, Roy went on to study architecture at the School of Planning and Architecture. She met and married her first husband. Unfortunately, the marriage was not to last.

Roy then married filmmaker Pradip Krishen. She played a village girl in his award winning film, Massey Sahib. Not too far after this was the publishing of her most famous novel, and first novel, The God of Small Things. This book received notice not just from her country India, but from around the world. In America it was awards and was citing as being a truthful and expressive book. In England it was found to be a very dramatic and sad work. Needless to say that Britain did not enjoy the novel much. Regardless of who liked it or who hated it, the one thing it did do was get noticed and put Roy in the international spotlight.

Aside from writing, Roy has penned a screenplay, In Which Annie Gives It Those Ones, and, Electric Moon. She has been unstoppable in her desire to write essays, newspaper columns, and speeches for the many issues she sees in her native India and around the world. She is known for her activism as much as her novel, or screenplays. Roy has commented and called out America for its war on Afghanistan, and for civil projects within her area of India.
