two-minute book review: interpreter of maladies

I read Interpreter of Maladies (a short story collection) by Jhumpa Lahiri last week (and I'm reading her novel, The Namesake, currently).  Here are my brief thoughts:

Favorite Quote: "In fact, the only thing three-dimensional about Boori Ma was her voice: brittle with sorrows, as tart as curds, and shrill enough to grate meat from a coconut."

Favorite Character: Eliot

Meetways: Nine Stories meets The God of Small Things

Three Words: authentic, poignant, accessible
