Unaccustomed Earth

Unaccustomed earth - Jhumpa Lahiri, Sarita Choudhury, Ajay Naidu I have another book to add to my list of favorites. I just finished Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri. A collection of short stories about Bengali immigrants - this book will touch your heart. Lahiri does a wonderful job in her portrayal of a wide cast of complex characters. As an American with immigrant parents, I can completely relate to the stories about children worrying that they can't achieve their parents' high expectations. 'What?? No PhD? How can we face our neighbors?' The narration of this audiobook is performed by Sarita Choudhury and Ajay Naidu. They are absolutely perfect and made this audiobook a joy from begining to end. 5 stars!
