Wow Jhumpa Lahiri s THE LOWLAND is a big novel with the power of her best short stories It follows the life of Subhash Mitra as he grows up in Calcutta and then moves to America typical fare for Lahiri but with much broader scope and even cleaner crisper writing than the Pulitzer Prize winner has shown in the pastWith a sweeping addictive plot THE LOWLAND still peels naked the identities brother lover father and mother often with just a small simple gesture It challenges the politics of nationality with both pathetic desperation and revolutionary zeal It makes you want and hope and despair with devastating stories of passion and indifferenceI won t write much about the plot because publication s still so far off plus spoilers But when you read it we need to talk I
