Jhumpa Lahiri

Have you ever heard of Jhumpa Lahiri? She is an Indian-American writer who won the Pulitzer Prize in fiction for her short story collection, Interpreter of Maladies in 2000. You may recognize the title of her book The Namesake that was the basis for the current movie of the same name. Try reading her book, before you see the movie. It’s a story of a Bangledeshi immigrant family, but in many ways speaks of us all–of our hopes and dreams, love, family, and wanting to fit in. It is a book you won’t want to miss, from an author that you need to know.
