Transplanting in Fertile Soil April 11, 2008

This month’s reading has gotten a late start (no surprise there!) but the wait is well worth it when wrapping around Jhumpa Lahiri’s new novel Unaccustomed Earth.  I think this is what happens as a writer when you don’t try to force yourself to crank out endless mundane or mediocre work just to satisfy the public, or put pressure upon oneself for the endless reasons.  Ms Lahiri constantly amazes me with her creative imaginary flare and such a gift to bring rich characters to the written page.

The LATimes and NewsWeek give your mind a nibble before we meet.
