    You know a book is good when someone asks you for a synopsis, or snippet, or impression, and all you can do is smile there, enveloped in some subtle magic that only you know about, kinda forget what it was all about altogether This happened with Interpreter of Maladies , a perfectly titled collection of short stories about Indian Americans in India or in the U.S Their ages experiences range from children to marrieds to 103 year olds, from tou

    In 2000 Jhumpa Lahiri became the first Indian American to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for her short story collection The Interpreter of Maladies In these nine poignant stories, Lahiri relates the Indian immigrant experience, connecting the tales and creating one voice for them The stories shared a sadness of being separated from one s family by thousands of miles, yet also offered a glimmer of hope for their lives in India or the United St

    I usually don t enjoy short stories that much Collections of short stories tend to have stories that are really strong mixed together with ones that aren t and this was no exception I do think the foreward for the kindle edition that I had contributed a lot to my enjoyment of the stories It really helped frame a connecting thread through out each story and tied it back to the title of the collection I m not sure if I would have enjoyed the stories as

    Writing short stories is not easy A novel is an easier literary form in a way it allows you the space for character and plot development and gives you the space to slowly fall in love with it Short story, on the other hand, is like literary speed dating it only has so much time to set itself apart and make a somewhat decent expression It s much easier for me to think of good novelists than good short story writers Let s try Hemingway, Poe, Bradbury, Chek

    In this stirring collection of short stories, Jhumpa Lahiri displays the diasporic struggle of men, assailed by nightmares of home, over the dilemma of assimilating into the new world or holding on to the past culture The author exhibits her majestic power of story telling with such grace and allure that the most wonderful thing happened to me today I seemed to have lost the sense of time while reading this splendid depiction of the plight of the homeless This d

    There are certain things in life that bewilder and baffle us with their staggering normality Things so simple yet unmistakably captivating, common place yet elegant, subtle yet profound Jumpa Lahiri s Pulitzer Prize winning collection of short stories is one of those things She writes with a grace and an elegance that transforms her simple stories into a delicate myriad of words and feelings Each story transforming you into a singularity bound to its harmonious beau

    I really enjoyed this collection pf short stories that won the Pulitzer in 2000 Lahiri s limpid text evokes the sadness and nostalgia of being an ex par something I can definitely identify with She has a wonderful word palette allowing her to create these small snapshots of life as a Bengali My favorite was the title story about a part time taxi driver taking an American family around to see temples near Calcutta The driver interprets for country people at a medical cli
