The New York Times bestseller from the Pulitzer Prizewinning author of Interpreter of Maladies, in a brand-new movie tie-in edition The Namesake, Jhumpa Lahiris remarkable debut novel, is a beautiful family portrait that has been hailed by the Philadelphia Inquirer as emotionally charged and deeply poignant. The Academy Award-nominated director Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding, Vanity Fair) picked up a copy of the Mariner paperback for a trans-Atlantic flight; soon after finishing the novel, she was seized by a strong creative urge. I immediately put two of my other films on the back burner and decided to first make The Namesake. It was an urgent feeling, and I dropped everything in my life to get down to making this film. Distributed by Fox Searchlight, the film is tentatively scheduled for late spring 2006. It stars Kal Penn (Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle) and was adapted by Sooni Taraporevala, with whom Nair previously collaborated on Mississippi Masala and the Oscar-nominated Salaam Bombay
