  • THE LOWLAND: A NOVEL by Jhumpa Lahiri

    This fascinating story about two brothers takes place in India and in America. Raised in Calcutta, they were inseparable as youngsters. As they grew, their paths took them in different directions; one toward active social revolution in India and the other toward a quiet life in scientific research in America. When the brother in India is killed because of his activism, Subhash returns home to offer comfort to his family and his brother's wife. It is not to be an easy task. And it is that endeavor that makes up a key ingredient of this engrossing story. What does one owe a beloved brother... in this life and beyond?

    This story is beautifully written. You'll find yourself rereading particular passages for their beauty and inspiration. Jhumpa Lahiri has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Literature.
