May Books 3) The Namesake, by Jhumpa Lahiri

A solid tale of the life of Gogol Ganguli, born in Boston to Bengali parents in the late 1960s, coming to terms with America and his Indian background. I enjoyed it a lot; it's basically an account of a complex love life against a complex cultural background, and Lahiri caught me out with a couple of the plot develoments. Recommended.
