The Lowland is an engrossing family saga steeped in history: the story of two very different brothers bound by tragedy, a fiercely brilliant woman haunted by her past, a country torn apart by revolution, and a love that endures long past death. Moving from the 1960s to the present, and from India to America and across generations, this dazzling novel is Jhumpa Lahiri at the height of her considerable powers.



Review Quotes



"Poised, haunting, exquisitely effective storytelling. . . . Lahiri is one of our most beautiful chroniclers of the aching disjunctions of emigration and family."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Exquisite. . . . Lahiri explores here what she has always explored best: the fragile inner workings of her characters. . . . An American master."
--Philadelphia Inquirer

"[Lahiri's] finest work so far. . . . At once unsettling and generous. . . . Shattering and satisfying in equal measure."
--The New York Review of Books

"Poignant. . . . There is an important truth here--that life often denies us understanding, and sometimes all there is to hold on to is our ability to endure."
--NPR

"Intriguing. . . . Brim[s] with pain and love and all of life's profound beauty."
--O, The Oprah Magazine

"Mesmerizing."
--The Washington Post Book World

"In The Lowland, we are all emigrants, not from one country to another but from the present to the future. . . . Tremendous."
--Lev Grossman, Time

"A masterful work that shines with brilliant language. . . . [Lahiri] has created a masterpiece."
--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Lahiri is an elegant stylist, effortlessly placing the perfect words in the perfect order time and again so we're transported seamlessly into another place."
--Vanity Fair

"Divided consciousness has been Lahiri's recurrent theme. . . . This time, Lahiri daringly redraws the map. . . . [Her] prose is blunter, less mellifluous: here worlds, new and old, contain terrors."
--The Atlantic

"The lowland [of the title] serves as Lahiri's telling metaphor for the dark, dank, weedy places that haunt our lives. . . . In its quiet intensity, [The Lowland] reminds us of the triumphant fiction of Alice Munro and William Trevor."
--Newsday

"A classic story of family and ideology at odds, love and risk closely twined. . . . An author, at the height of her artistry, spins the globe and comes full circle."
--Vogue

"A great American writer."
--Chicago Tribune

"Memorable, potent. . . . Lahiri has reached literary high ground with The Lowland."
--USA Today

"A master of dramatic turns, but not in the conventional sense. She lets tension build slowly until something snaps. What she twists is you. . . . Lahiri shows that a twist can be even more devastating when you've been afraid that it might happen all along. A"
--Entertainment Weekly

"A must-read. . . . Delivers Lahiri's trademark lyrical prose woven with a fast-paced narrative and indelible characters."
--Slate

"Lahiri returns confidently to the themes that have earned her critical praise, an eager audience and a Pulitzer Prize. . . . [Here] she adds a historical dimension that creates a vital, intriguing backdrop. . . . [The] story is unique, but it's also universal, a reminder of the past's pull on us all."
--The Miami Herald

"Expansive and intimate. . . . Lahiri's writing is precise and restrained. . . . Loyalty and betrayal, lies and forgiveness, filial responsibility and abandonment, the choices and sacrifices we make to find our way in the world are beautifully wrought in this novel."
--The Oregonian

"Subtle but devastating. . . . The themes of this beautifully written novel may be grand--love, ­revolution, desertion--but it's an intimate tale that offers no easy answers."
--Parade

"The kind of book that stays with you long after you finish it. . . . Full of sharp insights about marriage and parenthood, politics and commitment."
--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Delicately harrowing. . . . Lahiri has a devastatingly keen ear for the tensions and misunderstandings endemic in our closest relationships."
--Bloomberg News
