really liked it
Read in July, 2008

I can't say 5 stars yet. I have too let this book steep for a little while. I'm not a huge fan of short stories, but I am a huge fan of jhumpa lahiri.
Part one of this book is different short stories that don't feel like short stories- the characters are rich and the plots believable and engaging.
Part two of the book is a novella that certainly displays the things i love about her writing. I stayed up until two am to finish it and then laid awake for a while with that weepy, choked-throat feeling that a delightfully fulfilling sad book gives me. Oh I love that feeling.
