New from Jhumpa Lahiri

New book, new website, new publisher. A lot of news from the lady from Brooklyn. The new book is "Unaccustomed Earth" her second book. Her first book, a collection of stories called "The Interpreter of Maladies" was brilliant. Her first novel, "The Namesake," was really good though, in my opinion, not as good at the story collection. A new novel from Lahiri is definitely something to look forward to. She seems to have the golden touch. In an age where authors are seldom considered stars, she has become one.

Her new publisher is Random House, unfortunately. Another big name for a big house. So it goes. At least she now has a website, www.jhumpalahiri.net, and it's pretty nice. With any luck it will be maintained well enough to let us lowly readers know what is going on with this beloved author.
