The Lowland

By Jhumpa Lahiri

Email This Page

Subhash and Udayan are brothers growing up in Calcutta – a hotbed for social activism in the newly independent country of India. Subhash leaves for America to study, but a family tragedy forever alters his life. This lyrical narrative jumps from the streets of India to the rainy beaches of Rhode Island to the world of academia. In the type of masterful, epic scope that we’ve come to expect from Lahiri – Lowland most certainly delivers.

Perfect for:

  • Lovers of Indian immigrant fiction.
  • Stories about conflicted women.
  • Anyone interested in learning about Indian history in a fluent, inspired way.
