Blogathon 2012 – May 30. The Namesake

Don’t have time to craft a post tonight. Too anxious to watch The Namesake, which starts in 3 minutes. But here’s what Wikipedia has to say:

The Namesake (2003) is the second book by author Jhumpa Lahiri. It was originally a novellapublished in The New Yorker and was later expanded to a full length novel. It explores many of the same emotional and cultural themes as her Pulitzer Prize-winning short story collection Interpreter of Maladies. Moving between events in CalcuttaBoston, and New York City, the novel examines the nuances involved with being caught between two conflicting cultures with their highly distinct religious, social, and ideological differences.







See you tomorrow- the last day of the Blogathon 2012.
