Jhumpa Lahiri: The Master Storyteller

Suman Bala (Editor)
Synopsis Jhumpa Lahiri, recipient of the coveted Pulitzer award for her collection of short stories Interpreter of Maladies, is a voice of Indo-American origin. Though she lives in the U.S., her work is imbued with ethos of Indian culture and sensibility. She may be considered a writer of Indian diaspora, though her own idea of India is 'of the mind' only. Through her characters, she tells us about the human conditions that have universal resonance in her immigrant identity that forms the core of her stories. She tells her tales as a master storyteller, with a distinctive voice. The present collection of essays, a pioneering venture, offers a wide-ranging critical response to her stories.
