Product description

Review

A domestic epic that manages to combine the personal and intimate with the political and the public superbly well (Harry Ritchie Daily Mail)

Sublimely brilliant (Esther Freud)

She has an extraordinary power of empathy for her characters and a steady hand for unspooling the knotted threads of their individual motives and histories

(Sunday Times)

An author, at the height of her artistry, spins the globe and comes full circle (Vogue)

Profound … real and convincing. The characters don’t act like people in a novel: they are much closer to real life in their responses, their heartfelt cries of pain

(Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

A sweeping, ambitious story... There is no doubt that The Lowland confirms Lahiri as a writer of formidable powers and a great depth of feeling

(Observer)

She observes the small moments of adapting to a new country particularly beautifully… Cool, measured and beguiling writing

(The Times)

Poignant story and epic sweep

(Tatler)

Elegant and thoughtful

(Literary Review)

Jhumpa 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 ... Every family story is somehow a war story; Lahiri has a talent for coolly illustrating this truth (Vanity Fair)

Such is the strength, individuality and vividness of Lahiri’s characters, that it’s a loss when their voices finally fall silent (Rachel Hore Independent on Sunday)

Hypnotic ... An excellent example of the art of fiction (Bharat Tandon Daily Telegraph)

[An] immaculately constructed and a model of lucidity, well deserving of its place on the Man Booker shortlist (Mail on Sunday)

A domestic epic that superbly combines the personal and intimate with the political and public (Irish Mail on Sunday)

Moving, surprising and utterly compelling ... It’s as beautiful as anything you will ever read – it touches your soul ... We’re not surprised that Lahiri’s work has made the Man Booker shortlist – it certainly gets our vote here ( Stylist)

Thrillingly nuanced ... Lahiri’s most ambitious work to date, brimming with pain and love and all of life’s profound beauty ( O, The Oprah Magazine)

Epic in sweep, especially when combined with the laden, potent themes, the intertwining of politics and sexuality, the cauterizing of emotional wounds and grievances, and the repetition of places and personalities ... Ms Lahiri's prose hums along as efficiently as a well-tuned engine, showing us the melancholy beauty of coastal New England; the surreal perceptions of an immigrant ... And the tension between generations (Siddhartha Deb International Herald Tribune)

An important novel for Lahiri to have written (Robert McCrum Observer)

This is the sort of domestic epic that manages to combine the personal and intimate with the political and public superbly well (Harry Ritchie Daily mail)

Jhumpa Lahiri is intelligent, astute, informed and genuine … The Lowland is real. Its emotional intelligence is extraordinarily persuasive, as is the calm, quietly intense Lahiri (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

Lahiri writes with great emotional precision (Anjali Joseph The Times)

Book Description

Two brothers bound by tragedy; a fiercely brilliant woman haunted by her past; a country torn by revolution: the most powerful and ambitious novel yet from the Pulitzer Prize-winning, multi-million copy bestselling author of The Namesake and Unaccustomed Earth
