About the book

Everyone has their secrets. In her stunning new collection of stories, Jhumpa Lahirigently lifts the veil to reveal how even the most ordinary lives have their dramas and tragedies andthen, as gently, lets it fall back down again.A middle aged man discovers that the death of his wife opens up his world in unexpected ways-his daughter worries that she will now have to look after him but finds that the tables have, in fact,turned; a housewife falls in love with a younger family friend-her child ascertains her secret manyyears on; a son is revulsed by his father's second marriage to a young woman who has none of thesophistication and elegance of his mother; a sister tries to save her brother from alcoholism andfinds herself rejecting him like everyone else. A young man and woman whose lives cross over theyears, finally and fatedly fall in love.Unaccustomed Earth returns to the terrain-the heart of family life and the immigrant experience-that Jhumpa Lahiri has made utterly hers, but her themes, this time around, have darkened anddeepened. Poised, nuanced, deeply moving, here is a superb collection: the finest she has writtenyet.

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.
