Staff Picks - Lilly
Lilly relishes linking books thematically by topic, location or culture, and using fiction to inform her non-fiction reading and visa versa. The list of titles below explores pan-Indian (and Bangladeshi) culture and identity. The cluster took shape when Lilly found herself captivated listening to the audio version of A Passage to India by E.M. Forster, which led her to Zadie Smith's White Teeth, which led her to The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri and so on...The books are listed in the order in which Lilly 'discovered' them culminating with National Book Award Non-Fiction winner Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo. Lilly looks forward to sharing her reading clusters with you here and at the store. Cheers!
