Find it in Collins Library!

Jhumpa Lahiri’s Interpreter of Maladies is her first book, a collection of nine stories about Indians and Indian Americans. Interpreter of Maladies won many honors, including the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, and launched Lahiri’s career with a bang.

None of the stories connect to each other in an obvious way; each story is unique in its characters and focus, but each connects in its theme and exploration of how people navigate tradition, change, and distance.
