The Lowland – Jhumpa Lahiri

lowlandREAD FOR BOOKERTHON

The story of two brothers living in 1960s Calcutta. One becomes involved in the Naxalite movement and the other relocates to the US.

❖ “A multi-generational, epic Indian novel with politics (of both the country and family) at its heart. I loved the characters, learnt a lot and barely put the book down from the first page to the last. I don’t think I read it, I simply absorbed it!” – Rachel
