I just finished Jhumpa Lahiri's collection of short stories and it was AWESOME! I suggest that everyone go out and read it! It was so good that I will not be posting it...and so far there havent been very many modern authors that I can say that about!

I just finished the Namesake by the same author.  It was excellent.

Another Lahiri fan here :-)

I've read Interpreter of Maladies (twice) and The Namesake. Her writing is subtle and insightful.

She has a new one called Unaccustomed Earth. Can't wait to read that one also.

Has Unaccustomed Earth come out yet? if not, do you know when? I can't wait to read the Namesake. It wont be for a while though as I have too much school reading right now. :(

I think I have Interpreter on my WL...

I love Jhumpa Lahiri!  I loved The namesake and thought the movie in no means did the book justice.
