"A writer of uncommon sensitivity and restraint."--Wall Street Journal

"Lahiri breathers unpredictable life into the page, and the reader finished each story reseduced, wishing he could spend a whole novel with its characters."--The New York Times Book Review

"Lahiri's touch is delicate yet assured, leaving no room for flubbed notes or forced epiphanies."--The Los Angeles Times
"A writer of uncommon elegance and poise."--New York times

"Dazzling writing, an easy-to-carry paperback format and a budget-respecting price tag of $12: Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies possesses these three qualities, making it my book of choice this summer every time someone asks for a recommendation...Simply put, Lahiri displays a remarkable maturity and ability to imagine other lives...[E]ach story offers something special. Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies will reward readers."--USA Today

"[S]torytelling of surpassing kindness and skill."--The San Francisco Chronicle
"Jhumpa Lahiri is the kind of writer who makes you want to grab the next person you see and say, 'Read this!'"--Amy Tan
