by Jhumpa Lahiri
Title available in paperback?: Yes
Description of book: "It is a story of the immigrant and second generation experience, growing up Indian and American, as well as the relationship between a son and his father. The story revolves around the son of two Indian immigrants living in New England.
I feel it would qualify for the campus book, easily applicable to the three questions posed when choosing a book (as listed in the Student Digest).
It can easily be found on Amazon and in many local libraries (in the S.B./Elkhart area)."
