    The Interpreter of Maladies is a collection of nine short stories that explore themes of identity, the immigrant experience, cultural differences, love, and family. The characters are largely Indian or Indian-American and their stories together paint an evocative picture of India s diaspora.

    In A Temporary Matter, an electrical outage forces married couple Shoba and Shukumar to confront their unspoken pain over the loss of a child. The darkness gives them a safe space to confess secrets. Shoba and Shukumar admit minor indiscretions in the beginning and lead up to nagging doubts about their marriage. In the end, Shoba admits she is moving out and Shukumar admits to holding his son after he died.

    It's 1999, and a young Bengali/Indian American author named Jhumpa Lahiri publishes her first work: a collection of nine short stories focused on the Bengali/Indian immigrant experience. Many of the stories had been previously published in magazines and literary reviews, but they come together as Interpreter of Maladies , named after of one of the stories in the collection.

    Lahiri's book is a smashing success. With her literary debut, she wins the 1999 O. Henry Award and the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Reviewers rave. And she's featured on Oprah's Top Ten booklist (we all know what that means: this book went on to sell 15 million copies.)
