Title Profile & Character Information

The Lowland

Annotation
Born 15 months apart in Calcutta, Subhash and Udayan Mitra nevertheless differ greatly: Udayan joins the insurgent Naxalite movement, while Subhash conducts scientific research in America. But when tragedy strikes, Subhash must return home. Love, responsibility, and idealism in a significant Sixties setting, with Pulitzer Prize winner Lahiri doing what she does best; a nine-city tour.
