Eight stories told with the same precise sense for human relations that distinguished the author's Pulitzer Prize collection, Interpreter of Maladies. The individual stories are beautifully developed, giving the reader an opportunity to form an attachment to her vital, flesh and blood characters that is rare in this type of fiction. Although she often weaves an element of different--and sometimes conflicting-- cultures into her work, Ms. Lahiri's prose transcends any borders and her gift for creating spellbinding tales out of life's small vagaries is boundless. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
