A New York Times Bestseller

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize

Winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award

Notable Book of the Year: The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, Seattle Times, and Publishers Weekly

The nine stories in this stunning debut collection unerringly chart the emotional journeys of characters seeking love beyond the barriers of nations and generations. Imbued with the sensual details of Indian culture, these stories speak with passion and wisdom to everyone who has ever felt like a foreigner. Like the interpreter of the title story, Lahiri translates between the strict traditions of her ancestors and a baffling new world.

Synopsis:

In this novel, a couple exchange confessions during nightly blackouts in a Boston apartment as they struggle to cope with a heartbreaking loss.

Synopsis:

A scintillating collection of short stories, each a study of yearning and exile among Boston's Indian community. The first UK edition of a debut collection that did well in the States and is part of Harper Collins' Indian Summer promotion. "One of the finest short story writers I have ever read" Amy Tan.
