USA: Jhumpa Lahiri loses out on US National Book Award1 min read
Pulitzer Prize winning Indian-American author Jhumpa Lahiri’s new novel, “The Lowland” failed to win the 2013 US National Book Award in fiction losing out to author James McBride.
McBride’s “The Good Lord Bird”, about the journey of a young slave in the 1850s scored over Lahiri’s tale of two brothers set in Kolkata of the 1960s.
