The Namesake: A Novel (English) Reprint Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.858

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.
