This story of the Indian-American Ganguli family centers on Gogol, the eldest son named after the famous Russian writer. The novel highlights the different ways in which Gogol's parents, first-generation immigrants, and Gogol and his generation, American-born children of immigrants, interact with India as a place, a culture, and an ethnic identity, and how they work to shape these identities within the New World.
