Perhaps a new term needs to be used for short stories such as these Each one is jam packed with details that never bog down; each one is as dense and rich as a novel The writing never falters; it is always smooth flowing and self assuredOf course the last 3 stories could be a novella and we are lucky not to have to buy a separate book to experience themWonderful characters wonderful stories wonderful writing

Unaccustomed EarthEine heimatlose Liebe Hema und Kaushik lernen sich in Massachusetts kennen Ihre Eltern die aus Bengalen stammen sind befreundet sie selbst können wenig miteinander anfangen Dafür ist der ältere Kaushik viel zu in sich gekehrt Hema himmelt ihn erfolglos von ferne an Fast zwanzig Jahre später begegnen sie sich zufällig in Rom Kaushik ist ein angesehener Kriegsfotograf Hema will vor einer Vernunftehe in Kalku. As I progressed through the first four stories I became and angry I couldn't understand why Lahiri would put out another book that was almost identical to to her first She seemed to have retreated even further into her safe space writing only about Bengali Americans who study at ivy league schools have well educated albeit maladjusted parents and struggle with redefining relationships after relocation I expected a lot when I read the title and its reference to Nathaniel Hawthorne's uote I expected she'd do justice to the idea but nope The themes are repetitive and hackneyed the female characters are extremely weak which bothered my feminist sentimentality no end and alcohol abuse seems to have become her chosen metaphor for all inner turmoil In fact she doesn't even do justice to the same hackneyed themes she addresses relationships father daughter brother sister etc but doesn't address any of the other usual suspects when it comes to immigrant struggles race sexuality discrimination social cultural identity etc On the other hand the writing was fluid and at some points I found her flair for tragedy uite impressive She does address some of the darker aspects of loneliness human awkwardness and tragedy especially delicately and manages to bring across her idea without unnecessarily complicating and cluttering her writing
