The Namesake

Today’s Book Group session generated interest in reading Nikolai Gogol’s The Overcoat.  Feel free to leave your comments!  Wikipedia has a bit of background on Nikolai Gogol.  I also mentioned to the group that I thought that Natalie Friedman’s article “From hybrids to tourists: children of immigrants in Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Namesake” really brought out the central themes of the book and particularly the issues Gogol/Nikhil deals with as sort of an “in-between” generation.
