"Two brothers bound by tragedy. A fiercely brilliant woman haunted by her past. A country torn by revolution. A love that lasts long past death. An extraordinary new novel, set in both India and America, that expands the scope and range of one of our most dazzling storytellers: the best-selling author of The Namesake and Unaccustomed Earth. Born just fifteen months apart, Subhash and Udayan Mitra are inseparable brothers, one often mistaken for the other in the Calcutta neighborhood where they grow up. But they are also opposites, with gravely different futures ahead. It is the 1960s, and 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. Subhash, the dutiful son, does not share his brother's political passion; he leaves home to pursue a life of scientific research in a quiet, coastal corner of America."--Book jacket

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Navigating between the Indian traditions they've inherited and the baffling new world, the characters in Jhumpa Lahiri's elegant, touching stories seek love beyond the barriers of cultures and generations. In "A temporary matter," published in The New Yorker, a young Indian-American couple faces the heartbreak of a stillborn birth, while their Boston neighborhood copes with a nightly blackout. In the title story, an interpreter guides an American family through the India of their ancestors and hears an astonishing confession. Lahiri writes with deft cultural insight reminiscent of Anita Desai and a nuanced depth that recalls Mavis Gallant

Einmal im Leben : eine Liebesgeschichte by Jhumpa Lahiri ( Book )

Hema und Kaushik lernen sich als Jugendliche in Massachusetts kennen. Ihre Eltern, die aus Bengalen stammen, sind befreundet; sie selbst können wenig miteinander anfangen. Dazu ist der ältere Kaushik, der den Krebstod seiner Mutter verarbeiten muss, viel zu in sich gekehrt. Hema himmelt ihn erfolglos von ferne an. Fast zwanzig Jahre später begegnen sie sich zufällig in Rom: Hema, nach zehnjährigem Geliebtendasein, auf der letzten Flucht vor einer Vernunftehe in Kalkutta; Kaushik am Ende einer Fotojournalistenkarriere in den Krisengebieten dieser Erde. Heimatlos sind sie beide, kulturell wie geistig? weltgewandt und doch getrieben. Eine jähe, wilde Liebe schlägt sie in den Bann und verheißt einen Hafen, doch ein dunkler italienischer Herbst wirft seine Schatten voraus ... Die Pulitzerpreisträgerin und US-Bestsellerautorin Jhumpa Lahiri entfaltet in dieser Liebesgeschichte eine ganze Welt voll schicksalhafter Dramatik, mit einer Prosa von suggestiver Eleganz und größtem Feingefühl. Die US-Ausgabe rief Begeisterungsstürme in der Presse hervor und stand bereits in der Woche nach dem Erscheinen auf Platz eins der Bestsellerliste
