Content descriptions

Summary: At the start of this multicultural family saga, it's 1968 and Ashoke and Ashima Ganguli, a newlywed Bengali couple, have just left India for Cambridge, Massachusetts, where Ashoke will attend MIT as an engineering graduate student. Ashima soon gives birth to their son, whom her husband names Gogol, in honor of the writer whose work he believes saved his life. Like his parents, who struggle to adapt to their new life in America, Gogol feels caught between two different worlds.
