I really wanted to write about Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri for Fiction Monday, but I didn’t carve out enough time this weekend or today to write it the proper post it deserves. So this is a less detailed way of saying, “check out the book!”
Lahiri also has a newer book that came out last year called “The Lowland.” I’ve been meaning to look that up as well.
I think I’ll write a proper Fiction Monday post and share that next Monday. Hold me to it, folks!

I hope my dark skin offends you. I hope pronouncing my name forces you to twist your tongue in ways you never imagined. I hope me speaking loudly to my parents in our language hurts your ears. I hope our fragrant food burns your nose. I am not here for you.
We are not here for you.
