Unaccustomed Earth:stories by Jhumpa Lahiri

book jacketThis book contains eight short pieces of fiction with a common theme. The characters are all immigrants from India living in the United States. Very smoothly written, the topics include dealing with aging parents, marital infidelity, breast cancer, alcoholism, family bonds and trust.  Reminiscent of O’Henry’s stories, many end with a touch of irony.
