Fiction. Literature. Short Stories. HTML:From the internationally bestselling, Pulitzer Prize??winning author, a superbly crafted new work of fiction: eight stories that take us from Cambridge and Seattle to India and Thailand.
 
In the stunning title story, Ruma, a young mother in a new city, is visited by her father, who carefully tends the earth of her garden, where he and his grandson form a special bond. But he??s harboring a secret from his daughter, a love affair he??s keeping all to himself. In ??A Choice of Accommodations,? a husband??s attempt to turn an old friend??s wedding into a romantic getaway weekend with his wife takes a dark, revealing turn as the party lasts deep into the night. In ??Only Goodness,? a sister eager to give her younger brother the perfect childhood she never had is overwhelmed by guilt, anguish, and anger when his alcoholism threatens her family. And in ??Hema and Kaushik,? a trio of linked stories??a luminous, intensely compelling elegy of life, death, love, and fate??we follow the lives of a girl and boy who, one winter, share a house in Massachusetts. They travel from innocence to experience on separate, sometimes painful paths, until destiny brings t… (més)

    A Few Short Notes on Tropical Butterflies: Stories de John Murray (ShortStoryLover)
    ShortStoryLover: Murray's style of writing in this collection of short stories is similarly subtle to Jhumpa Lahiri's in her short story collections. Several of his stories feature Indian-Americans, and two are set in India.

En totes les històries els protagonistes són fills d'emigrants indis que han prosperat a EEUU. Es debaten entre la vida americana i l'eco sempre present de la cultura dels seus pares. Conflictes gerneracionals, desorientació i el sentiment qu, per a tots ells totes les terres són estranyes. ( )

There is much cultural news in these precisely observed studies of modern-day Bengali-Americans — many of them Ivy-league strivers ensconced in prosperous suburbs who can’t quite overcome the tug of traditions nurtured in Calcutta. With quiet artistry and tender sympathy, Lahiri creates an impressive range of vivid characters — young and old, male and female, self-knowing and self-deluding — in engrossing stories that replenish the classic themes of domestic realism: loneliness, estrangement and family discord.

"Human nature will not flourish, any more than a potato, if it be planted and replanted, for too long a series of generations, in the same worn-out soil. My children have had other birthplaces, and, so far as their fortunes may be within my control, shall strike their roots into unaccustomed earth."

Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Customs House

…I gathered from my parents’ talk that it was regarded as a wavering, a weakness. “They should have known its impossible to go back,” they said to their friends, condemning your parents for having failed at both ends. We had stuck it out as immigrants while you had fled; had we been the ones to go back to India, my parents seemed to suggest, we would have stuck it out there as well.
