Description

‘One of the finest short story writers I’ve ever read’ Amy Tan

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE

WINNER OF THE PEN/HEMINGWAY AWARD

WINNER OF THE NEW YORKER PRIZE FOR BEST FIRST BOOK

Jhumpa Lahiri’s prize-winning debut collection explores the lives of Indians in exile – of people navigating between the strict traditions they’ve inherited and the baffling New World they must encounter every day.

Whether set in Boston or Bengal, these sublimely understated stories, imbued with umour and subtle detail, speak with eloquence to anyone who has ever felt the yearnings of exile or the emotional confusion of an outsider.

‘Lahiri is a writter of uncommon elegance and poise, and with Interpreter of Maladies she has made a precocious debut’ New York Times

Publisher Review

'Lahiri has an extraordinary voice' Salman Rushdie 'Jhumpa Lahiri is the kind of writer who makes you want to grab the next person you see and say "Read this!" She's a dazzling storyteller with a distinctive voice, an eye for nuance, an ear for irony. She is one of the finest short story writers I've read.' AMY TAN 'Jhumpa Lahiri's strong, subtle short story collection is a debut to relish.' Guardian
