The Lowland

National Book Award FinalistShortlisted for the 2013 Man Booker PrizeFrom the Pulitzer Prize-winning, best-selling author of The Namesake comes an extraordinary new novel, set in both India and America, that expands the scope and range of one of our most dazzling storytellers: a tale of two brothers bound by tragedy, a fiercely brilliant woman haunted by her past, a country torn by revolution, and a love that lasts long past death. Born just fifteen months apart, Subhash and Udayan Mitra are inseparable brothers, one often mistaken for the other in the Calcutta neighborhood where they grow up. But they are also opposites, with gravely different futures ahead. It is the 1960s, and Udayan--charismatic and impulsive--finds himself drawn to the Naxalite movement, a rebellion waged to eradicate inequity and poverty; he will give everything, risk all, for what he believes. Subhash, the dutiful son, does not share his brother's...

  • "From Subhash's earliest memories, at every point, his brother was there. In the suburban streets of Calcutta where they wandered before dusk and in the hyacinth-strewn ponds where they played for hours on end, Udayan was always in his older brother's sight. So close in age, they were inseparable in childhood and yet, as the years pass - as U.S tanks roll into Vietnam and riots sweep across India - their brotherly bond can do nothing to forestall the tragedy that will upend their lives. Udayan - charismatic and impulsive - finds himself drawn to the Naxalite movement, a rebellion waged to eradicate inequity and poverty. He will give everything, risk all, for what he believes, and in doing so will transform the futures of those dearest to him."

  • ""The Lowland is an engrossing family saga steeped in history: the story of two very different brothers bound by tragedy, a fiercely brilliant woman haunted by her past, a country torn by revolution, and a love that lasts long past death. Moving from the 1960s to the present, and from India to America and across generations, this dazzling novel is Jhumpa Lahiri at the height of her considerable powers"--Page [4] of cover."
  • "An outstanding new collection of stories that explore the heart of family life and the immigrant experience, from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Interpreter of Maladies and The Namesake."
  • "Two brothers bound by tragedy; a fiercely brilliant woman haunted by her past; a country torn by revolution: the Pulitzer Prize winner and #1 New York Times best-selling author gives us a powerful new novel, set in both India and America, that explores the price of idealism and a love that can last long past death. Growing up in Calcutta, born just fifteen months apart, Subhash and Udayan Mitra are inseparable brothers, one often mistaken for the other. But they are also opposites, with gravely different futures ahead of them. It is the 1960s, and Udayan, charismatic and impulsive, finds himself drawn to the Naxalite movement, a rebellion waged to eradicate inequity and poverty: he will give everything, risk all, for what he believes. Subhash, the dutiful son, does not share his brother's political passion; he leaves home to pursue a life of scientific research in a quiet, coastal corner of America. But when Subhash learns what happened to his brother in the lowland outside their family's home, he comes back to India, hoping to pick up the pieces of a shattered family, and to heal the wounds Udayan left behind, including those seared in the heart of his brother's wife."
  • "Brothers Subhash and Udayan Mitra pursue vastly different lives--Udayan in rebellion-torn Calcutta, Subhash in a quiet corner of America--until a shattering tragedy compels Subhash to return to India, where he endeavors to heal family wounds."

For all of them, the repercussions of his actions will reverberate across continents and seep through the generations that follow. Epic in its canvas and intimate in its portrayal of lives undone and forged anew, The Lowland is a deeply felt novel of family ties that entangle and fray in ways unforeseen and unrevealed, of ties that ineluctably define who we are."

  • "Am Rande eines mit Wasserhyazinthen überwucherten, zu Monsunzeiten überschwemmten Tieflands in einem Vorort von Kalkutta wachsen die Brüder Subhash und Udayan Mitra auf. Sie sind unzertrennlich, aber auch sehr verschieden. Beide interessieren sich für Wissenschaft und Politik. Aber Subhash, der Pflichtbewusste, entzieht sich den wirren politischen Verhältnissen der sechziger Jahre und zieht in ein ruhiges Küstenstädtchen im Osten der USA, um sich dort der Wissenschaft zu widmen. Udayan hingegen lässt sich mit militanten Maoisten ein und riskiert alles für seinen Traum von einer gerechteren Welt? Aber als Subhash erfährt, was seinem Bruder in jenem mit Hyazinthen überwucherten Gewässer zugestoßen ist, kehrt er nach Indien zurück, um die Wunden zu heilen, die Udayan, nicht zuletzt im Herzen seiner jungen, schwangeren Frau, geschlagen hat. Es entspinnt sich ein mitreißendes familiäres Drama über Kontinente und Generationen. Dieser beeindruckende Roman war in den angelsächsischen Ländern ein großer Bestseller. Lahiris Kunst liegt in der Verbindung von weiter Perspektive mit intimster persönlicher Geschichte. Ihre Charaktere, ihre Sätze und Bilder funkeln: Sie ist eine literarische Meisterin, eine der faszinierendsten und erfolgreichsten Autorinnen in den USA von heute."
