Quotes Shayantani Liked

Jhumpa Lahiri
“They were things for which it was impossible to prepare but which one spent a lifetime looking back at, trying to accept, interpret, comprehend. Things that should never have happened, that seemed out of place and wrong, these were what prevailed, what endured, in the end.”
Jhumpa Lahiri, The Namesake

Jhumpa Lahiri
“That's the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.”
Jhumpa Lahiri, The Namesake

Nilusha Abeysekara Read this and loved it . What other books by the Jhumpa Lahiri would you recommend?

Interpreter of Maladies is a short story collection, and it was amazing. Unaccustomed Earth was darker, but it was equally good. It dealt with the 3rd generation of Indian immigrants. I recommend both of them!

Nilusha Abeysekara Ok. Will check them out :) Thanks.
