Mélyföld


Jhumpa Lahiri rendkívüli regénye, Indiában és Amerikában játszódik. Két testvér tragédiával összekötött története, egy nagyszerű asszonyé, akit kísért a múltja, egy országé, amelyet szétszakított a forradalom, és egy szerelemé, amely messze túléli a halált. Subhash és Udayan Mitra, akik között csupán tizenöt hónap van, elválaszthatatlan testvérek, gyakran összetévesztik őket Calcutta környékén, ahol felnőnek. De ugyanakkor egymás ellentétei is, akikre eltérő jövő vár. Az 1960-as években járunk, és a karizmatikus és lobbanékony Udayan belesodródik a Naxalita mozgalomba, abba a lázadásba, amely céljául tűzte ki az egyenlőtlenség és a szegénység felszámolását. Udayan a meggyőződéséért mindent feláldoz, mindenkit kockára tesz. Subhash, a kötelességtudó fiú, nem osztja testvére szenvedélyes politikai elhivatottságát, hanem elhagyja az otthonát, hogy Amerika egyik csöndes, tengerparti szegletében tudományos kutatásnak szentelje az életét. De amikor megtudja, mi történt a testvérével, visszatér a mélyföldre, Indiába, azt remélve, hogy talpra állíthat egy széthullott családot, és begyógyíthatja a sebeket, amelyeket Udayan hagyott maga után.A Mélyföld mesterien fölépített, feszültséggel teli, metszően bensőséges, bonyolult érzelmeket tükröző mű. Egy elmélyült családregény és a történelembe ágyazott történet, amely nemzedékeken, földrajzi helyeken tökéletes hitelességgel ível át. Jhumpa Lahiri valóban eljutott írói munkásságának a csúcsára.

The Namesake


'The Namesake' is the story of a boy brought up Indian in America. 'When her grandmother learned of Ashima's pregnancy, she was particularly thrilled at the prospect of naming the family's first sahib. And so Ashima and Ashoke have agreed to put off the decision of what to name the baby until a letter comes!' For now, the label on his hospital cot reads simply BABY BOY GANGULI. But as time passes and still no letter arrives from India, American bureaucracy takes over and demands that 'baby boy Ganguli' be given a name. In a panic, his father decides to nickname him 'Gogol' -- after his favourite writer. Brought up as an Indian in suburban America, Gogol Ganguli soon finds himself itching to cast off his awkward name, just as he longs to leave behind the inherited values of his Bengali parents. And so he sets off on his own path through life, a path strewn with conflicting loyalties, love and loss! Spanning three decades and crossing continents, Jhumpa Lahiri's much-anticipated first novel is a triumph of humane story-telling. Elegant, subtle and moving, 'The Namesake' is for everyone who loved the clarity, sympathy and grace of Lahiri's Pulitzer Prize-winning debut story collection, 'Interpreter of Maladies'.

Lowland


SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2013. 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: his newly married, pregnant wife, his brother and their parents. 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. With all the hallmarks of Jhumpa Lahiri's achingly poignant, exquisitely empathetic story-telling, this is her most devastating work of fiction to date.

In Other Words


National Best Seller From the best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner, a powerful nonfiction debut—an “honest, engaging, and very moving account of a writer searching for herself in words.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred) In Other Words is a revelation. It is at heart a love story—of a long and sometimes difficult courtship, and a passion that verges on obsession: that of a writer for another language. For Jhumpa Lahiri, that love was for Italian, which first captivated and capsized her during a trip to Florence after college. Although Lahiri studied Italian for many years afterward, true mastery always eluded her. Seeking full immersion, she decides to move to Rome with her family, for “a trial by fire, a sort of baptism” into a new language and world. There, she begins to read, and to write—initially in her journal—solely in Italian. In Other Words, an autobiographical work written in Italian, investigates the process of learning to express oneself in another language, and describes the journey of a writer seeking a new voice. Presented in a dual-language format, this is a wholly original book about exile, linguistic and otherwise, written with an intensity and clarity not seen since Vladimir Nabokov: a startling act of self-reflection and a provocative exploration of belonging and reinvention. From the Hardcover edition.
