Interpreter of Maladies

Title: Interpreter of Maladies
By: Jhumpa Lahiri

A well-written short story is a precious pearl and in this collection, you have a delicate string of pearls. Jhumpa Lahiri's collection, Interpreter of Maladies, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2000 and the PEN/Hemingway Award. Lahiri writes about people who are balancing the cultures and values of India and the United States...sometimes in one world, sometimes in the other, sometimes in both. Each of her characters is elegantly and tenderly drawn and they are each people the reader cares about. Jhumpa Lahiri is a young writer with many stories to tell. Don't miss this remarkable first collection.
