Jhumpa Lahiri is one of those authors I can't get enough of. I read Interpreter of Maladies shortly after it won the pulitzer and read The Namesake as soon as it came out. Now, she has another book of short stories that I can't wait to get my hands on. The Atlantic has an interesting interview with her in this month's edition. I find her attitude towards her work fascinating.
Last year when the movie The Namesake came out, I saw Lahiri and director Mira Nair speak about the process of creating the movie. As a writer, Lahiri is one of those people who I would love to emulate. And as a reader, I can't wait to go to the bookstore and pick up the new book.
