The number are in and the chosen book for the first Tati’s Tidbits Book Club is- The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri. Buy it/read it – we will discuss on nov 20th, when the second Book Club selection will be announced. Send me your thoughts on it before then, and i will publish them 🙂

The Lowland

Blurb: “From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Namesake comes an extraordinary new novel, set in both India and America, that expands the scope and range of one of our most dazzling storytellers: a tale of two brothers bound by tragedy, a fiercely brilliant woman haunted by her past, a country torn by revolution, and a love that lasts long past death. Masterly suspenseful, The Lowland is a work of great beauty and complex emotion; an engrossing family saga and a story steeped in history that spans generations and geographies with seamless authenticity.”

Why I pre-selected it & want to read it: His previous works are great, and if you haven’t seen the Namesake movie, I think you need to go and do some Netflix! Also i have interpreter of maladies in my to read list so its going to be fun to read them together.  It has been hailed one of the top books of the fall coming out in many magazines, so it also peaked my interest. Additionally, it just came out, so there is little chance you would have already read it!
