it was amazing
bookshelves: 2010, traveling-vicariously, short-stories
Read in November, 2010

I'm not normally a short story fan, but Lahiri's short stories have the depth and weight of a novel. The title story was my first introduction to her writing, found in an anthology when I was teaching creative writing. I read it aloud to several of my high school classes. Rereading it now, it's just as brilliant and I noticed new details that I didn't remember from previous readings. The other stories are equally beautiful.
