"The Bookseller of Kabul" by Asne Seierstad, translated by Ingrid Christopher: "The Narrative Nonfiction Book Club had a lot to discuss with this international bestseller!" Faith
The Bookseller of Kabul - an interesting read, in spite of lukewarm reviews and lawsuit controversy.
2006: The Norwegian journalist provides a portrait of a committed Muslim man and his family living in post-Taliban Kabul, Afghanistan.
For more than 20 years, Sultan Khan has defied the authorities--whether Communist or Taliban--to supply books to the people of Kabul. He has been arrested, interrogated, and imprisoned, and has watched illiterate Taliban soldiers burn piles of his books in the street. Yet he had persisted in his passion for books, shedding light in one of the world's darkest places. This is a rare look at contemporary life under Islam.

The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri: love this book. Did you know that it was made into a movie staring Kal Penn!
Jhumpa Lahiri's transcontinental novel about trying to keep your traditional Indian roots while living a modern life in present-day USA. Also a great movie.
A beautifully told coming-of-age story that is also about how to reconcile in-betweenness: of culture, of place, of time. Jhumpa Lahiri's novel The Namesake.
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri. A great novel about the challenges immigrants face.. It felt very honest, relatable and real.
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri: An incisive portrait of the immigrant experience follows the Ganguli family from their traditional life in India through their arrival in Massachusetts in the late 1960s and their difficult melding into an American way of life, in a debut novel that spans three decades, two continents, and two generations.
Jhumpa Lahiri's "The Namesake." Her other works are good, too, but I think this one is her best. A very accurate depiction of the rift between first- and second-generation family members. The amount of description in this novel is just astounding; Lahiri has a gift with words.
