Brick Lane

I think that the cultural strife that is depicted in Brick Lane is the most important aspect of the story to modern day readers. Here we have something that is still going on all over the western world, a culture clash that’s not only happening between two different cultures, but also within cultures. Brick Lane really does a good job of showing characters being torn between their heritage and their new country. You can look at the Boston Marathon bomber and see someone who has rejected their country and chosen there heritage.There are pros and cons to both sides and I think Brick Lane does a good job of showing that.
