Book Review: The Namesake

The Namesake: A Novel by Jhumpa Lahiri. A portrait of the immigrant experience follows the Ganguli family from their traditional life in India through their arrival in Massachusetts in the late and their difficult melding into an American way of life.

The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri - Another great novel that I read for class. Deals with cultural identity as an Indian family tries to assimilate into American culture. Beautiful story telling by Ms. Lahiri. You should definitely add it to your "must read" list.
