Interpreter of Maladies

An earlier collection of stories by Jhumpa Lahiri, earlier than Unaccustomed Earth that is. These are more "Indian" stories than those of Unaccustomed Earth. And while they were pleasant, these stories were a little too short and a little too foreign to be relatable. Nevertheless Lahiri is an excellent painter of small stories of small people, people we are or know. I look forward to more of her work.
