The Lowland

Nominated for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2014

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: his newly married, pregnant wife, his brother and their parents. For all of them, the repercussions of his actions will reverberate across continents and seep through the generations that follow. Epic in its canvas and intimate in its portrayal of lives undone and forged anew, The Lowland is a deeply felt novel of family ties that entangle and fray in ways unforeseen and unrevealed, of ties that ineluctably define who we are.
With all the hallmarks of Jhumpa Lahiri's achingly poignant, exquisitely empathetic story-telling, this is her most devastating work of fiction to date.

Zitat
PRAISE FOR UNACCUSTOMED EARTH: 'Lahiri's enormous gifts as a storyteller are on full display in this collection: the gorgeous, effortless prose; the characters haunted by regret, isolation, loss, and tragedies big and small; and most of all, a quiet, emerging sense of humanity Khaled Hosseini It's difficult to think of a contemporary writer who gives her characters so much dignity ... The result is is fiction of matchless restraint, yet also of rich, complex and credible characters The Times Subtle and moving, accumulating in suspense, until the tour de force of the last three linked stories had me hanging, heartbroken but still hopeful, on her every word Esther Freud, Guardian Books of the Year Redolent with los and grief and dislocation but possessed of a breathtaking integrity and, ultimately, hope Daily Telegraph Books of the Year
