Short Story Sunday: Jhumpa Lahiri’s “Brotherly Love”

sssFirst Line: “East of the Tolly Club, after Deshapran Sashmal Road splits in two, there is a small mosque.”

I have not yet got my hands on Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Lowland, but this excerpt, published in the New Yorker, has made me all the more impatient for it. It’s harrowing, and on the long side for this feature, but I felt that I had to share it with you. And if any of you have read The Lowland, what did you think? Share in the comments!

In the meantime, you can read “Brotherly Love” here.
