Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri

About the book

Beginning in America, and spilling back over memories and generations to India, Unaccustomed Earth explores the heart of family life and the immigrant experience. Eight luminous stories – longer and richer than any Jhumpa Lahiri has yet written – take us from America to Europe, India and Thailand as they follow new lives forged in the wake of loss.

Reviewed by Basingstoke Tuesday Afternoon

“An excellent book, beautifully written. A lot of deep themes but handled with lightness and subtlety. We all enjoyed it very much and had thought provoking discussions”
