Jhumpa Lahiri
Knopf, available 1 April 2008

I had a note in my inbox this morning from a fellow disclaimer about Jhumpa Lahiri:  

Hi, everyone!  I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter weekend.  I just wanted to give you a heads-up, in case you didn’t know, that Jhumpa Lahiri, author of The Namesake and The Interpreter of Maladies, has a new book coming out on April 1st.  It is titled Unaccustomed Earth, and like Interpreter, it is a collection of short stories.  I’ve seen great reviews.

Lahiri’s Unaccustomed Earth will be a nice addition to this summer’s on the night table and I’m looking forward to it. 

There is a really good article (The Writer Who Began With A Hyphen, Washington Post) about Lahiri and her Pulitzer Prize. It’s an old article, but quite interesting. There is also a web site at jhumpalahiri.com that’s a little on the side of doubtful, meaning there’s nothing other than lots of per-click line ads; but there’s plenty of legit Google results that highlight Lahiri and her accomplishments

More to come…
