I just finished reading ‘Interpreter of maladies’, the Pulitzer-winning book by Jhumpa Lahiri. I found it to be a wonderfully written book, definitely worth a read.
It contains nine short stories, most of them revolving around the Bengali community and their experiences outside India. All the stories are poignantly written. The narration is brilliant. The theme of the stories is a bit offbeat, but the description is so wonderfully done that one feels connected with the characters deeply. I could feel each emotion that each of the characters went through, while I was reading the book.
I left off reading ‘The namesake’ by Lahiri in between some time ago, and I think I am now prepared to continue it further. It’s up for reading as soon as I get back to Ahmedabad.
