I haven't read The Lowland yet, but I've read The Namesake and both the short story collections. I really like them, but in the second collection in particular I felt like she could have expanded her range a bit: IIRC, there was one narrator in the collection who wasn't an affluent Bengali-American who went to an Ivy League school and probably was an alcoholic academic, and that one was an affluent Bengali-American who went to Swarthmore and was an alcoholic. That said, within that limited world she's got everything down pat.
