Críticas:

"[S]torytelling of surpassing kindness and skill."

"Lahiri's touch is delicate yet assured, leaving no room for flubbed notes or forced epiphanies."

"ÝS¨torytelling of surpassing kindness and skill."

"ÝLahiri¨ announces herself as a wonderfully distinctive new voice.
Indeed, Ms. Lahiri's prose is so eloquent and assured that the reader
easily forgets the 'Interpreter of Maladies' is a young writer's
first book...Ms. Lahiri chronicles her characters' lives with both
objectivity and compassion while charting the emotional temperature
of their lives with tactile precision. She is a writer of uncommon
elegance and poise, and with 'Interpreter of Maldies' she has made a
precocious debut."

"Dazzling writing, an easy-to-carry paperback format and a budget-respecting price tag of $12: Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies possesses these three qualities, making it my book of choice this summer every time someone asks for a recommendation...Simply put, Lahiri displays a remarkable maturity and ability to imagine other lives...[E]ach story offers something special. Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies will reward readers."

"Lahiri's touch in these nine tales is delicate, but her observations
remain damningly accurate, and her bittersweet stories are unhampered
by nostalgia..."

"India is an inescapable presence in this strong first collection's
nine polished and resonant tales, most of which have appeared in The
New Yorker and other publications."
