The Lowland (Large Print)

The Lowland (Large Print) Cover

 

Staff Pick

In The Lowland, Jhumpa Lahiri tells the story of two brothers who share everything as children but begin to pull apart as they grow older. Their childhood is set against a 1960s poverty rebellion known as the Naxalite movement in Calcutta, India. However, the focus here is not politics but rather family, love, duty, truth, honor, and happiness. Quiet, heart-wrenching, and beautiful, The Lowland asks the impossible-to-answer question, What will you do for what you believe? Lahiri's storytelling is masterful and her prose is gorgeous.
