The Lowland by Jumpha Lahiri
Set in both India and American, The Lowland is a powerful new novel that explores the price of idealism and a love that can last long past death. Subhash and Udayan Mitra are inseparable brothers, one often mistaken for the other, but they could not be more different. When Udayan’s political ambitions land him in trouble, Subhash must leave his coastal home in America and travel back to India to put the pieces of his brother’s broken life back together. It’s a novel about fate and will, exile and return, and will leave you feeling as if you know the brothers and their plight intimately.
