Jhumpa Lahiri's lilting prose paints a pretty picture, but the melancholy can get to you. Many of her characters are maladjusted, sad, Bengali immigrants, not even trying to fit in, and their children are often confused and sadder still. But she writes beautifully! In this book, she explores the lives to two second-generation Indian immigrants as they weave their way through life in America, then Europe and Thailand. Interesting read!
