Linda talks to Arundhati Roy, author of the novel, "The God of Small Things." It's the story of fraternal twins who grow up in Kerala, India. Roy's language and structure for the book are unusual. She says that the structure ambushes the story; the plot is revealed at the beginning of the book and then the narrative goes back to reexamine events in greater detail. (STATIONS: "The God of Small Things" is published by Random House.)
