With penetrating insight, she reveals not only the defining power of the names and expectations bestowed upon us by our parents, but also the means by which we slowly, sometimes painfully, come to define ourselves.
The New York Times has praised Lahiri as "a writer of uncommon elegance and poise. Hopscotching across 25 years, it begins when newlyweds Ashoke and Ashima Ganguli emigrate to Cambridge, Mass. Ashoke becomes a professor of engineering, but Ashima has a harder time assimilating, unwilling to give up her ties to India. A leap ahead to the '80s finds the teenage Gogol ashamed of his Indian heritage and his unusual name, which he sheds as he moves on to college at Yale and graduate school at Columbia, legally changing it to Nikhil.
In one of the most telling chapters, Gogol moves into the home of a family of wealthy Manhattan WASPs and is initiated into a lifestyle idealized in Ralph Lauren ads. Here, Lahiri demonstrates her considerable powers of perception and her ability to convey the discomfort of feeling "other" in a world many would aspire to inhabit. After the death of Gogol's father interrupts this interlude, Lahiri again jumps ahead a year, quickly moving Gogol into marriage, divorce and a role as a dutiful if a bit guilt-stricken son.

Lahiri offers a number of beautiful and moving tableaus, but these fail to coalesce into something more than a modest family saga. One World. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The Clothing of Books. How to write a great review.

Report as inappropriate. Very moving and touching.
Lahiri has mastered the art of speaking into our lives and showing us where we are vulnerable. I must share this book with someone! Because the movie for this book looked sooooo bad, I avoided reading this title for a while.
It was very worthwhile. The language is wonderful. And I particularly liked how it ended without everything being neatly tied up. Life never is. Very interesting.
A wonderful story that provides insight into first and second generation immigrants and the issues they face.Sign in.
