Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri

Fabulous writing that makes for super-satisfying reading. I love how she focuses on the nuances of everyday life, giving them emphasis and showing how profound they can be. I liked some of the connectedness between the last three stories. However, in the very last one, I didn’t like that I knew what was going to happen simply because of current events.
