Interpreter of Maladies

Full of life and an intense emotional connection to the characters within, these short stories may involve the lives of india's people, but the situations are a reminder to us all of our own experiences and the influences of all we meet. Well written, each pulls the reader in and subjects him to the emotional turmoil and highlights that we feel as we travel through our lives, Some of the stories make you smile, some make you sad or upset, but all tug at your heart and touch your very soul.

Insightful and Kind

Jhumpa Lahiri’s characters are extraordinarily ordinary, yet deep as the stars. I miss each one like a friend at the end of each story.
