Synopsis:

An incisive portrait of the immigrant experience follows the Ganguli family from their traditional life in India through their arrival in Massachusetts in the late 1960s and their difficult melding into an American way of life, in a debut novel that spans three decades, two continents, and two generations. By the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Interpreter of Maladies.


Review:

"[H]er novel touches us almost everywhere with the truth of more than one life, and it does not lack the vulgar appeal without which art stops short at a decorous success. Three are scenes you do not want to let go of, subsidiary characters whom you would like to hold on to much longer....[I]n this second book Lahiri's pace and accent are unmistakable: somber, unrushed, acute in the exposure they offer to life's injuries and to it inroads of hope....Her gift is a power of sympathy that makes us concerned with the luck of her characters even when she is letting us know that the luck will end."

David Bromwich, Nation, 10/27/2003

Review:

"The rich characterization, piercing details and phosphorescent silences so evident in Jhumpa Lahiri's breathtaking debut collection of stories, THE INTERPRETER OF MALADIES, are all in evidence in her first novel. But, by offering a protagonist who does not seem to want anything, at least in any focused way, Lahiri has broken a cardinal rule of her own storytelling. It is a testament to her artistry that she often gets away with it....The precision and sagacity of Lahiri's observations of the world offer much to enjoy."

Bill Broun, Times Literary Supplement, 01/09/2004
