    Description

    The Lowland is the second novel written by Jhumpa Lahiri. It is the story of two brothers from Calcutta coming of age and the consequences of their choices.

    Summary of the Book

    Subhash and Udayan were inseparable as brothers during their childhood. But they eventually tread their own ways as they grow older. Subhash goes on to pursue his Ph.D. in the United States, while his brother becomes involved in the Naxal activities in West Bengal. Still, Subhash’s life abroad is influenced by Udayan’s acts in the political movement in India. All Udayan wants to do is to create a better future for his loved ones. In his attempts to realize his dream, he fails to realize the terrible consequences of his choices. This title was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2013 and for the Bailey’s Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2014. It was also a finalist for the National Book Award for Fiction.
