Jhumpa Lahiri “Interpreter of maladies”

Interpreter of Maladies is truly a masterpiece. It is a book collection of nine short stories by Indian American author Jhumpa Lahiri published in 1999. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award in the year 2000. Rich with culture, Interpreter of Maladies shows characters that are simple, human, and very relatable. They are mostly gentle, believable, foolish or strong – they’re a pleasure to be with. Lahiri is a storyteller who shows beauty in simplicity, exploring Indians and Americans, the immigrant experience. Each story is unique.
I loved her style of writing and really enjoyed this author and I plan on reading more by her.
