Review: Interpreter of Maladies


Interpreter of Maladies
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I always prefer short story collections to novels, and this definitely beat The Namesake for me. She has a very unique voice telling stories of cultural transplants that both Indians and Americans can understand and enjoy. These stories enraptured me with their deep subtle style. They show our humanity in the face of war, distance, and alienation.
