Explanation of the Book:

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER • WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE • PEN/HEMINGWAY AWARD WINNER. With a new foreword by Domenico Starnone, this stunning debut collection flawlessly charts the emotional journeys of characters seeking love beyond the barriers of nations and generations. With accomplished precision and gentle eloquence, Jhumpa Lahiri traces the crosscurrents set in motion when immigrants, expatriates, and their children arrive, quite literally, at a cultural divide. A blackout forces a young Indian American couple to make confessions that unravel their tattered domestic peace. An Indian American girl recognizes her cultural identity during a Halloween celebration while the Pakastani civil war rages on television in the background. A latchkey kid with a single working mother finds affinity with a woman from Calcutta. In the title story, an interpreter guides an American family through the India of their ancestors and hears an astonishing confession. Imbued with the sensual details of Indian culture, these stories speak with passion and wisdom to everyone who has ever felt like a foreigner. Like the interpreter of the title story, Lahiri translates between the strict traditions of her ancestors and a baffling new world.

Explanation of the Book:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A marvelous new novel from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Lowland and Interpreter of Maladies--her first in nearly a decade. Jhumpa Lahiri’s ravishing new novel follows an unnamed narrator in an unnamed city. In the arc of one year, in the middle of her life’s journey, she realizes that she’s lost her way. Whereabouts celebrates ordinary life and community while exploring existential themes of presence and absence. Lahiri’s narrator, a woman questioning her place in the world, wavers between stasis and movement, between the need to belong and a refusal to form lasting ties. The city she calls home acts as her companion and interlocutor: traversing the streets around her house, and in parks, piazzas, museums, stores, and coffee bars, she feels less alone. We follow her to the pool she frequents, and to the train station that leads to her mother, who is mired in her own solitude after her husband’s untimely death. Among those who appear on this woman’s path are colleagues with whom she feels ill at ease, casual acquaintances, and “him,” a shadow who both consoles and unsettles her. Until one day at the sea, both overwhelmed and replenished by the sun’s vital heat, her perspective will abruptly change. Whereabouts is an exquisitely nuanced portrait of urban solitude, one that shimmers with beauty and possibility. It is also a thrilling departure for Jhumpa Lahiri, her first novel written in Italian as well as the first time she has self-translated a full-length work. The reader will find the qualities that make Lahiri’s work so beloved: deep intelligence and feeling, richly textured physical and emotional landscapes, and a poetics of dislocation. But this novel, a play of shadow and light, also signals a bold shift of style and sensibility, and an artist reveling in a new form.

Explanation of the Book:

English Is Being Written And Read Today By More People Outside England Than Inside. This Applies No Less To The Women Writers In English Across The Globe Who Have Made Their Unmistakable Mark In English Literature[S], Especially In The Last Century. The Present Volume, The Second In The New Projected Series Of Atlantic Publishers And Distributors, Studies In Women Writers In English Bears Evidence To This Phenomenon As The Critics Address Women Writers In English In Various Parts Of The Globe Rather Than Concentrating On Canonised Mainstream Authors And Texts, And Thus Mainstream Writers Figure Only Referentially, In The Margin Of These Critical Texts, As It Were. Again, Understandably Indian Writers Take Over A Chunk Of The Space. However, The Essays Included In This Volume Cover Authors From America, Canada And India, And Also Some General Theoretical Discourse Regarding Feminism And Marginal Literature.The Authors Discussed In This Volume Are Christina Rossetti Of England, Emily Dickinson, Harper Lee, Lorraine Hansberry And Sylvia Plath Of America, Margaret Atwood And Beatrice Culleton Of Canada, And Kamala Markandaya, Kamala Das, Nayantara Sahgal, Anita Desai, Githa Hariharan Of India. Apart From This A Wide Spectrum Of Indian Writers Have Been Referred To And Treated In The General Articles On Feminist Theory And Practice, Especially In India Today, And Yesterday.The Sixteen Essays Of The Volume Will Be Found Interesting As Well As Useful By Students, Teachers And Scholars And Will Also Be Enjoyed By The General Readers.
