Jhumpa Lahiri’s Unaccustomed Earth #1 on NYT Bestseller List

On April 20, Jhumpa Lahiri’s second story collection “Unaccustomed Earth” will debut at #1 on The New York Times Bestseller list.  While this is good news for Lahiri fans who enjoy her richly crafted stories about Indian immigrants, normally well educated Bengalis, adjusting to life in America, it is also good news for the short story.  Lahiri’s collection sits atop a field of novels on the list, muscling past serial novels by Jim Butcher and Jonathan Kellerman.  Read the short write up about it here

  1. I am not surprised that her second book has jumped so quickly. She is a modern master and it is her last book of Short Stories and incredible prose in Namesake that continues to inspire my own writing. It is wonderful to see the Short Story where it should be in the world of fiction.

  2. Marie!

    I just picked this up and I am so excited about reading it. I love her.
    Miss you!
