Descripción del producto

Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies established this young writer as one the most brilliant of her generation. Her stories are one of the very few debut works -- and only a handful of collections -- to have won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Among the many other awards and honors it received were the New Yorker Debut of the Year award, the PEN/Hemingway Award, and the highest critical praise for its grace, acuity, and compassion in detailing lives transported from India to America. In The Namesake, Lahiri enriches the themes that made her collection an international bestseller: the immigrant experience, the clash of cultures, the conflicts of assimilation, and, most poignantly, the tangled ties between generations. Here again Lahiri displays her deft touch for the perfect detail -- the fleeting moment, the turn of phrase -- that opens whole worlds of emotion.
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 wedding, Ashoke and Ashima Ganguli settle together in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 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. Lahiri brings great empathy to Gogol as he stumbles along the first-generation path, strewn with conflicting loyalties, comic detours, and wrenching love affairs. With penetrating insight, she reveals not only the defining power of the names and expectations bestowed upon us by our parents, but also the means by which we slowly, sometimes painfully, come to define ourselves. The New York Times has praised Lahiri as "a writer of uncommon elegance and poise." The Namesake is a fine-tuned, intimate, and deeply felt novel of identity.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas It's all in the details 8 de mayo de 2017
Por J Greene. - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle Compra verificada
This is quite an ordinary story of a young man struggling to find his identity, conflicted by his mixed heritage and unable to fit into his own name. What makes it exceptional is the delightful sensitivity of the description of his journey. We follow him through his boyhood, his education, his series of affairs, the loss of his father and his lovers -- nothing remarkable except for the telling. The subtle colors and textures that are woven through Lahiri's prose bring this story to life. It's not a page turner, not to be taken as a succession of tequila shots, but rather to be sipped and savored like fine wine. I'm still enjoying the aftertaste.

Wasn't sure how I would like this book. Not my typical read. Our book club selected this book for the month. What a great choice . The characters are so well developed. There are times you want to tell some of the characters to snap out of it and be grateful for your family. The storyline is one that makes you see the world differently. Reflecting is how I feel. One part just tore me up. Enjoy

This is an incredibly well written intricate tapestry of what it is like for an Indian woman who marries an Indian man and follows him to a new life in America. The family values and customs from the parents of the immigrants cause unforeseen dilemmas. It is so intriguing, at each stage of their new life, to follow how it feels to be in a new land, how the customs differ, how their lives intertwine with others, and what it is like for their first child, the Namesake, through his childhood, and further down the road. I haven't yet finished the book, but it is a delight to read! For anyone who wonders what the immigrant experience is like, I highly recommend this book. For anyone who doesn't think about the immigrant experience, I particularly recommend this book!

Such a well written book with nice character development, good flow of the story and lovely family & history. Interesting to see the play between characters and how their upbringing and culture played in their decisions. Liked how actions that were taken early in Gogol's life returned in the end to show him his paths. Thoroughly enjoyable read & author.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A beautiful book that details growing up 11 de abril de 2017
Por Adam Rauscher - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
This book is about isolation - from your homeland, your family, and even yourself. And yet, the author brings you closer to these characters than you can ever imagine. You see yourself in them as they see themselves in no one. A beautiful book that details growing up, moving away, and realizing that we are both alone and together on this crazy world.
