The Number One New York Times bestseller from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Interpreter of Maladies and The Namesake.
Winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best Book.
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.
"Lahiri's enormous gifts as a storyteller are on full display...gorgeous."
(Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner)
"Contains some of the best, most beautiful fiction written this decade - the kind that will be read fifty years from now."
