"Lahiri's characters are charmers....She breathes unpredictable life into the page, and the reader finishes each story reseduced, wishing he could spend a whole novel with its characters. There is nothing accidental about her success; her plots are as elegantly constructed as a fine proof in mathematics."
Caleb Crain, New York Times Book Review, 07/11/1999Review:
"...Jhumpa Lahiri traces the lives of people on two continents--North America and India--and in doing so announces herself as a wonderfully distinctive new voice. Indeed, Ms. Lahiri's prose is so eloquent and assured that the reader easily forgets that INTERPRETER OF MALADIES is a young writer's first book."
