5.0 out of 5 stars A moving and satisfying read, 11 Jan 2009
This review is from: Unaccustomed Earth (Hardcover)
I had previously read 'the Interpreter of maladies' and 'the namesake' and so was already a Jhumpa Lahiri fan. These stories are beautifully written, and the characters are credible and sympathetic. Her subject matter is mainly family life and its tensions, first and second generation Bengali immigrants to the US and the changes in cultural identity and lifestyle which occur from one to the other. But that is to simplify her scope; none of her characters are predictable or stereotypical, and their dilemmas cross cultural and racial boundaries. I found the stories very moving and would recommend them highly.
