Jhumpa Lahiri, The Lowland | Arts & Culture
Jhumpa Lahiri's The Lowland is a magnificent novel, under consideration for both the Man Booker Prize and the National Book Award. I am honored to read it as part of the "very-long" list of the Maine Readers' Choice Award. I finished it more than a month ago, but I haven't been able to write about it, mainly because I want so much to do it justice.
As much as I insisted that I like a book that has a very compact time frame (in my post about The Dinner), I have to say that Lahiri can achieve the opposite - a book that spans an entire human lifetime.
