Description

About the book

Two brothers bound by tragedy. A fiercely brilliant woman haunted by herpast. A country torn by revolution. A love that lasts long past death. This extraordinary,emotionally riveting new novel, set in India and America, expands the scope and range ofone of our most beloved storytellers: the Pulitzer Prize-winning, #1 New York Times bestsellingauthor of Interpreter of Maladies and Unaccustomed Earth.Born just fifteen months apart, Subhash and Udayan Mitra are inseparable brothers, one oftenmistaken for the other in the Calcutta neighborhood where they grow up. But they are alsoopposites, with gravely different futures ahead. It is the 1960s, and Udayan-charismatic andimpulsive-finds himself drawn to the Naxalite movement: he will give everything, risk all,for what he believes. Subhash, the dutiful son, does not share his brother's political passion;he leaves home to pursue a life of scientific research in a quiet, coastal corner of America.But when Subhash learns what happened to his brother in the lowland outside their family'shome, he comes back to India, hoping to pick up the pieces of a shattered family, and to healthe wounds Udayan left behind-including those seared in the heart of his brother's wife.Suspenseful, sweeping, piercingly intimate, The Lowland is a masterly novel of fate andwill, exile and return. Shifting among the points of view of a wide range of richly drawncharacters, it is at once a page-turner and a work of great beauty and complex emotion; anengrossing family saga with very high stakes; and a story steeped in history that seamlesslyspans generations and geographies. A tour de force and an instant classic, this is JhumpaLahiri at the height of her considerable powers.
