The Namesake -- Jhumpa Lahiri, Paperback


With a new afterword from Jhumpa Lahiri, a new edition of the contemporary classic.

"Dazzling...An intimate, closely observed family portrait."--The New York Times

"Hugely appealing."--People Magazine

"An exquisitely detailed family saga."--Entertainment Weekly

Meet the Ganguli family, new arrivals from Calcutta, trying their best to become Americans even as they pine for home. The name they bestow on their firstborn, Gogol, betrays all the conflicts of honoring tradition in a new world--conflicts that will haunt Gogol on his own winding path through divided loyalties, comic detours, and wrenching love affairs.

In The Namesake, the Pulitzer Prize winner Jhumpa Lahiri brilliantly illuminates the immigrant experience and the tangled ties between generations.
