Beginning in America, and spilling back over memories and generations to India, Unaccustomed Earth explores the heart of family life and the immigrant experience. Eight luminous stories - longer and richer than any Jhumpa Lahiri has yet written - take us from America to Europe, India and Thailand as they follow new lives forged in the wake of loss.

  1. främmande jord
    bonadea, 20 december 2014

    Jag har läst den på svenska , främmande Jord är fylld av noveller om indiska invandrare. Jag e inte förtjust i noveller utan gillar långa berättelser men främmande Jord var en positiv överraskning, alla noveller var riktigt bra och hade kunnat utvecklas och bli riktiga böcker. Gillar man kortare historier så är denna bok att rekommendera.

'Lahiri's enormous gifts as a storyteller are on full display ... gorgeous' Khaled Hosseini 'Probably the most influential writer of fiction in America' Financial Times 'Contains some of the best, most beautiful fiction written this decade - the kind that will be read 50 years from now' New Statesman 'It's difficult to think of a contemporary writer who gives her characters so much dignity ... Fiction of matchless restraint, yet also of rich, complex lives and credible characters' The Times
