Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lahiri’s touch in these nine tales is delicate, but her observations remain damningly accurate, and her bittersweet stories are unhampered by nostalgia.” Publishers Weekly
“[Lahiri] announces herself as a wonderfully distinctive new voice. Indeed, Ms. Lahiri’s prose is so eloquent and assured that the reader easily forgets the Interpreter of Maladies is a young writer’s first book…Ms. Lahiri chronicles her characters’ lives with both objectivity and compassion while charting the emotional temperature of their lives with tactile precision. She is a writer of uncommon elegance and poise, and with Interpreter of Maladies she has made a precocious debut.” New York Times
“Lahiri’s touch is delicate yet assured, leaving no room for flubbed notes or forced epiphanies.” Los Angeles Times
“Storytelling of surpassing kindness and skill.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Dazzling writing…Simply put, Lahiri displays a remarkable maturity and ability to imagine other lives…Each story offers something special. Jhumpa Lahiri’s Interpreter of Maladies will reward readers.” USA Today
“Lahiri’s language is uncluttered; she’s sparing with metaphor, and the riches accumulate unobtrusively.” Newsweek
