About the Book

This volume examines the craft and concerns of the Indian American fictionist Jhumpa Lahiri. Nuances of human relationships (largely under diasporic tensions), longing and nostalgia for the homeland, alienation and marginality in the host country, 'difficulties of existence' in various processes of hybridization, layered communication in chronological narrativity are some of the many aspects of Lahiri's writing interrogated in this volume. In addition to two general essays on her art and two interviews with her, the Anthology carries a large number of close critical studies of Lahiri's widely acclaimed books, Interpreter of Maladies and The Namesake, from varied yet interrelated points of view.
