Join our vibrant discussion of beloved and bestselling author Jhumpa Lahiri’s Unaccustomed Earth
(Vintage Books, 2009). These eight beautifully rendered stories explore the secrets of family life and the intricate workings of the heart and mind. Unaccustomed Earth
is a New York Times Book Review Best Book of the Year. In reviewing the book, the NYT says “Lahiri handles her characters without leaving any fingerprints. She allows them to grow as if unguided, as if she were accompanying them rather than training them through the espalier of her narration. Reading her stories is like watching time-lapse nature videos of different plants, each with its own inherent growth cycle, breaking through the soil, spreading into bloom or collapsing back to earth.” The study group will read two stories weekly with each story discussion led by a participant.
