The Namesake (English) Reprint Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs. 230

The Namesake is a contemporary novel about immigration and a family's lifelong search for melding into the new world by Jhumpa Lahiri.

Summary of the Book

Ashoke and Ashima Ganguli leave Calcutta for Cambridge, Massachussets. The novel begins with Ashima's delivery, and the birth of their first son. Ashoke is a student at MIT, and Ashima struggles with the language and culture of this new world. They are forced to give their child a legal name immediately after birth, and by accident, the child's pet name they decided upon, Gogol, becomes his legal name. Throughout his life Gogol hates his name, and he before leaving for college, he renames himself Nikhil Gogol Ganguli. Gogol enrolls at Yale, despite his father's wishes that he too study at MIT like him. His continuous hatred for his name and the distance he begins to develop both geographically and culturally with his parents form the rest of this novel.

About Jhumpa Lahiri

Jhumpa Lahiri is an Indian American writer. She is well known for her collection of short-stories: Interpreter of Maladies, for which she won the Pulitzer Prize, and for her other full-length novel The Lowland.

Ms. Lahiri was appointed a member of the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities by Barack Obama. The Lowland was nominated for the Man Booker Prize and the National Book Award For Fiction. The Namesake has since been adapted into a film of the same name.

Can't express it in words

When I completed reading this novel, I was literally in thoughts. It made me think about the importance of a nickname in one's life. Last 20 pages were fantastically represented by the author. Ashima's life and her contribution to the family is impeccably depicted.
It is one of the best writings…

Classic Read..!!!

Jhumpa Lahiri is one of the best writers of recent times. She actually has that capability of expressing and narrating scenes, characters very beautifully and deeply, rarely observed these days among writers.

'The Namesake' is one masterpiece. It has dealt with every character's perception of living very impressively. Why it matters to parents for children to keep up with their native culture and why children born and brought up on foreign land retaliate to it.

Set aside the story-line, every other chapter is a story with an impactful conclusion of its own.

One Word - Brilliant !

One of the most-heart touching , poignant and articulate piece of story-telling in modern times ... the story of an immigrant Bengali family in US .. spread over 2 generations .. the ups and downs , the pain and joy , the jubiliation and sorrow -- all facets rolled into one book. Excellent work by Jhumpa Lahiri !
