On Vox: Finally read The Namesake

The Namesake: A Novel
Jhumpa Lahiri

Since we haven't seen the movie yet, I figured I'd finally get around to reading The Namesake. I had been delaying it for a long time because I was a little intimidated by what I'd heard about the story, and because it's been about a decade since I've read any fiction at all. (Seriously!)

Unsurprisingly, I loved the book (to an approximation, this is my story too) so hopefully i will get a few minutes to write up a proper review later. Until then, go get a copy or borrow your friends' and read it yourself.
