What great books did you hear about / discover this week?
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri.
I recently watched "The Namesake" and enjoyed the film which was based on Lahiri's novel by the same title. Earlier this week I noticed Ms. Lahiri's collection of short stories "Unaccustomed Earth" was named to the NYT list of the Ten Best Books of 2008. I thought that perhaps I should begin reading this author starting with her first book, "Interpreter of Maladies," also a collection of short stories. Imagine your debut book being awarded with the Pulitzer Prize for fiction... I've ordered the book from my local bookseller and am excited about reading it.
"Still, there are times I am bewildered by each mile I have traveled, each meal I have eaten, each person I have known, each room in which I have slept. As ordinary as it all appears, there are times when it is beyond my imagination."
— Jhumpa Lahiri from Interpreter of Maladies
