Summary ↠ Interpreter of Maladies ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Tory an interpreter guides an American family through the India of their ancestors and hears an astonishing confession Lahiri writes with deft cultural insight reminiscent of Anita Desai and a nuanced depth that recalls Mavis Galla. I really enjoyed this collection pf short stories that won the Pulitzer in 2000 Lahiri s limpid text evokes the sadness and nostalgia of being an ex par something I can definitely identify with She has a wonderful word palette allowing her to create these small snapshots of life as a Bengali My favorite was the title story about a part time taxi driver taking an American family around to see temples near Calcutta The driver interprets for country people at a medical clinic as he studied languages that are no longer widely spoken The way in which the author invokes the cultural distance between the driver and the tourists and his infatuation with the motherwife of the family is beautiful without being sappy and sincere enough that the woman actually confesses an infidelity to him The saddest story I felt was that of Mrs Sen who takes brief care of little Elliot for a short time in which he learns about frailty and loneliness mirrored between that of his mother and that of Mrs Sen The last story is the most positive and demonstrates how love can evolve from arranged marriages sometimes due to the most unlikely circumstancesThis is a beautiful book and completes my reading of all Pulitzer winners between 2000 and 2016 and makes me want to read her longer fiction such as The Namesake
