I haven't done Mailbox Monday in a while because I have been trying to read from my shelves and resist acquiring more than I can handle.
However, I met my sister for lunch yesterday and we did some book trading over mimosas and omelettes.
She gave me a copy of Unaccustomed Earth, by Jhumpa Lahiri, and said it was fantastic. So that's my new book for this month! I'm excited to read it because it is eight interconnected short stories set in Cambridge, Seattle, India, and Thailand. I don't get to India and Thailand much in my reading and I've been wanting to, so this will be perfect.
Here's what Amazon had to say:
These eight stories by beloved and bestselling author Jhumpa Lahiri take us from Cambridge and Seattle to India and Thailand, as they explore the secrets at the heart of family life. Here they enter the worlds of sisters and brothers, fathers and mothers, daughters and sons, friends and lovers. Rich with the signature gifts that have established Jhumpa Lahiri as one of our most essential writers,Unaccustomed Earth exquisitely renders the most intricate workings of the heart and mind.Anyone read this book or anything by Lahiri. The cover of this book said she won a Pulitzer Prize for The Namesake.
