PLG Fiction Book Group discusses The Namesake
Led by Greenlight general manager Alexis, our fiction book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens discusses paperback fiction, reading broadly in contemporary fiction with the occasional diversion into classics. For March, the group reads and discusses The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri, which deals with the immigrant experience, the clash of cultures, the conflicts of assimilation, and, most poignantly, the tangled ties between generations. In the story of second generation Indian American Gogol Ganguli, Lahiri 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.
Current book group picks are always 15% off at Greenlight, in the store or online.
