Description

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lahiri delivers eight dazzling stories that take readers from Cambridge and Seattle to India and Thailand as they explore the secrets at the heart of family life.
From the internationally best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, a superbly crafted new work of fiction: eight stories--longer and more emotionally complex than any she has yet written--that take us from Cambridge and Seattle to India and Thailand as they enter the lives of sisters and brothers, fathers and mothers, daughters and sons, friends and lovers.
In the stunning title story, Ruma, a young mother in a new city, is visited by her father, who carefully tends the earth of her garden, where he and his grandson form a special bond. But he's harboring a secret from his daughter, a love affair he's keeping all to himself. In "A Choice of Accommodations," a husband's attempt to turn an old friend's wedding into a romantic getaway weekend with his wife takes a dark, revealing turn as the party lasts deep into the night. In "Only Goodness," a sister eager to give her younger brother the perfect childhood she never had is overwhelmed by guilt, anguish, and anger when his alcoholism threatens her family. And in "Hema and Kaushik," a trio of linked stories--a luminous, intensely compelling elegy of life, death, love, and fate--we follow the lives of a girl and boy who, one winter, share a house in Massachusetts. They travel from innocence to experience on separate, sometimes painful paths, until destiny brings them together again years later in Rome.
"Unaccustomed Earth" is rich with" "Jhumpa Lahiri's signature gifts: exquisite prose, emotional wisdom, and subtle renderings of the most intricate workings of the heart and mind. It is a masterful, dazzling work of a writer at the peak of her powers.

Juhmpa Lahiri is a great story writer. Unaccustomed Earth shows her talent is in full bloom. Each of the eight stories in Unaccustomed Earth is superb. Every story is full of emotions and sentiments that are quoted so well in words. There is no gimmick in her writing. All the characters are shaped well that they all kept you stuck to the novel. The title story throws light on the relationship between a father and his daughter. They have different opinions which led to a frail bond between them. This is surely a powerful collection of short stories. Hats off to Jhumpa for such a dazzling fiction.

A very good fiction novel to read. Excellent work by Jhumpa Lahiri. This is straightway storytelling about issues which we all can relate ourselves with. All the stories are short yet written intelligently. This is the best fiction by her. All the stories are equally strong and touching that they don’t let you put the book down. Her work is masterful and confident. The title story revolves around Ruma and her widowed father who rarely talk about matters of real importance. A must read for all the book lovers.
