  • "Meet the Ganguli family, new arrivals from Calcutta, trying their best to become Americans even as they pine for home. The name they bestow on their firstborn, Gogol, betrays all the conflicts of honoring tradition in a new world -- conflicts that will haunt Gogol on his own winding path through divided loyalties, comic detours, and wrenching love affairs. The Namesake brilliantly illuminates the immigrant experience and the tangled ties between generations."

  • "The Namesake takes the Ganguli family from their tradition-bound life in Calcutta through their fraught transformation into Americans. On the heels of their arranged marriage, Ashoke and Ashima Ganguli settle together in Cambridge, Massacheusetts. An engineer by training, Ashoke adapts far less warily than his wife, who resists all things American and pines for her family. When their son is born, the task of naming him betrays the vexed results of bringing old ways to the new world. Named for a Russian writer by his Indian parents in memory of a catastrophe years before, Gogol Ganguli knows only that he suffers the burden of his heritage as well as his odd, antic name."
  • "A la naissance de leur fils, Ashoke et Ashima attendent une lettre de leur grand-mère précisant comme l'exige la coutume indienne, le prénom de leur fils. La lettre n'arrivant pas, l'enfant s'appellera Gogol. Plus tard, le prénom Gogol sera remplacé par un prénom bengali. Grandissant comme un petit Américain, Gogol s'oppose à ce changement, au risque de se couper de ses racines... Premier roman."
