From Subhash's earliest memories, at every point, his brother was there. In the suburban streets of Calcutta where they wandered before dusk and in the hyacinth-strewn ponds where they played for hours on end, Udayan was always in his older brother's sight. So close in age, they were inseparable in childhood and yet, as the years pass - as U.S tanks roll into Vietnam and riots sweep across India - their brotherly bond can do nothing to forestall the tragedy that will upend their lives. Udayan - charismatic and impulsive - finds himself drawn to the Naxalite movement, a rebellion waged to eradicate inequity and poverty. He will give everything, risk all, for what he believes, and in doing so will transform the futures of those dearest to him.

Review:

A domestic epic that manages to combine the personal and intimate with the political and the public superbly well (Harry Ritchie Daily Mail)

Sublimely brilliant (Esther Freud)

She has an extraordinary power of empathy for her characters and a steady hand for unspooling the knotted threads of their individual motives and histories

(Sunday Times)

An author, at the height of her artistry, spins the globe and comes full circle (Vogue)

Profound ... real and convincing. The characters don’t act like people in a novel: they are much closer to real life in their responses, their heartfelt cries of pain

(Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

A sweeping, ambitious story... There is no doubt that The Lowland confirms Lahiri as a writer of formidable powers and a great depth of feeling

(Observer)

She observes the small moments of adapting to a new country particularly beautifully... Cool, measured and beguiling writing

(The Times)

Poignant story and epic sweep

(Tatler)

Elegant and thoughtful

(Literary Review)

Jhumpa Lahiri is an elegant stylist, effortlessly placing the perfect words in the perfect order time and again so we’re transported seamlessly into another place ... Every family story is somehow a war story; Lahiri has a talent for coolly illustrating this truth (Vanity Fair)

Book Description:

Two brothers bound by tragedy; a fiercely brilliant woman haunted by her past; a country torn by revolution: the most powerful and ambitious novel yet from the Pulitzer Prize-winning, multi-million copy bestselling author of The Namesake and Unaccustomed Earth
