Name: Jhumpa Lahiri Birth Date: Place of Birth: London, England Nationality: American Gender: Female Occupations: Novelist, Short story writer
Authors and Artists for Young Adults on Jhumpa Lahiri Jhumpa Lahiri writes fiction about the Indian immigrant experience in America. She surprised the literary world in 2001 when she won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for her very first full-length effort, a collection of short stories titled Interpreter of Maladies. The daughter of Bengali parents who immigrated to the United States, Lahiri attended school in New England, but also spent considerable time while growing up visiting her extended family in Calcutta, India. She uses Calcutta as the setting for three of the nine stories in Interpreter of Maladies and accurately contrasts Indian values with American values in her other stories. The eloquent language, mature observations, and delicate insights belied Lahiri's newcomer status, according to many critics, who welcomed her second work of fiction, 2003's

Interview: Jhumpa Lahiri
Before the movie was the printed word.  Jhumpa Lahiri The Namesake , followed her Pulitzer Prize award-winning book of short stories, Interpreter of Maladies .  Houghton Mifflin has a nifty collection of resources related to Jhumpa and The Namesake here This is my kickoff to Namesake Q: Was the book based on your family? JL:  It is based on a more diffuse experience.  The characters were cobbled together from people I’ve known, people I’ve been exposed to.  I think I was just drawing on the experiences of growing up in this country, being of Bengali heritage, as a sort of background noise for the story. I always thought of it as a very basic coming-of-age tale, of growing up and feeling divided loyalties and to me that was my main goal, to get that across, that sense of what is it like to grow up with a name that doesn’t make sense to you, doesn’t make sense in the place where you’re living, it comes out of those feelings. Q: There’s a line in the book about how books help you travel without moving an inch.  Does, in your mind, Ashoke Ganguli regret that he had traveled, regret the journey?

Jhumpa Lahiri was born in 1967 in London but raised in South Kingstown, The stories of Jhumpa Lahiri s first book whisper and scream traces of India
Jhumpa Lahiri Biography G rowing up in America under the supervision of a mother who wanted to raise her children to be Indian, it is no surprise that Jhumpa Lahiri puts so large an emphasis on the 'stories of Indians in what for them is a strange land' (Rothstein 1). Publishing her first book, Interpreter of Maladies , in 1999, Lahiri has become a quick international success and an award-winning author. Jhumpa Lahiri was born in 1967 in London but raised in South Kingstown, RI by her father, a librarian, and her mother, a teacher. The influence of frequent childhood visits to India and parents who are still a part of the Indian world despite their immigration to America thirty years ago shaped her book (People Weekly 138). Lahiri's role as a writer developed in grade school when she began to '[write] 10-page "novels"' during recess with her friends' (Patel 80). Later in her school years, Lahiri busied herself with the school newspaper. After graduating from Barnard college, Lahiri continued at Boston University to obtain her masters degrees in English, comparative literature, and creative writing and later her PhD in Renaissance studies. Following the PhD program, she did a two-year fellowship at Provincetown's Fine Arts Work Center. During completion of her doctorate thesis in 1997, she worked for Boston magazine as an intern and was given little trust 'as a real writer' (Flynn 173). The joke seems to be on Boston magazine and any others who doubted her after the release of her first book which began to receive awards almost immediately following publishing. Among the first received in 1999 was the PEN/Hemingway award for the best fiction debut of the year. The title story, 'Interpreter of Maladies,' was chosen for the O Henry Award for best American short stories. Lahiri was a recipient of the Transatlantic Review award from Henfield foundation and the fiction prize from Louisville Review.

Jhumpa Lahiri's collection of short stories INTERPRETER OF MALADIES: STORIES FROM BOSTON, BENGAL AND BEYOND has won the 2000 PULITZER PRIZE for fiction. The story "Interpreter of Maladies" has been selected for both the O. HENRY AWARD and inclusion in The Best American Short Stories. Born in London, raised in New England, now living in New York City, "cosmopolitan" Lahiri is marked as an "ethnic writer." But in some ways Lahiri does not satisfy the checklist of ethnic writers. Her stories are set in India and the U.S., and travel back and forth with no effort. Lahiri is at her most skillful when portraying the uneasy mixing of Indian and American values

    "The Namesake" By Jhumpa Lahiri From Calcutta to Boston to the borderless kingdom of words Sunday, October 05, 2003 By Sherri Hallgren Jhumpa Lahiri won the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for her first book, the luminous and richly praised story collection "Interpreter of Maladies." While writing about the complications faced by Indian immigrants and their first-generation American children, Lahiri's deeper interest was to explore relationships between women and men, a territory without borders. "The Namesake" By Jhumpa Lahiri Houghton Mifflin ($24) Now, in her much-anticipated first novel, she focuses on the cultural dislocations of one family, immigrants from Calcutta who settle in Boston to study, work and raise a family. Like her subtle, precise stories, this novel moves quietly, eloquently across its central arc from the birth of a son to the death of the father. And as with those stories, its appeal is cross-cultural, with an impact that accrues, chapter by chapter, until its final poignant insights. It begins in 1968, when Ashoke Ganguli and his wife, Ashima, newlyweds in an arranged marriage, arrive in Cambridge, where Ashoke is a doctoral candidate in electrical engineering at MIT. For Ashoke, this is a journey of liberation; for Ashima it is exile from family at the worst imaginable time because she is pregnant.

    tumbling since 1999
    jhumpa lahiri
    I've always been very ambivalent about things Indian. I don't feel pride when I see this stuff happening I don't feel that ''we've made it.'' I don't feel part of any we. And it's funny. Nobody I know in India practices yoga. You don't have people rushing home from their jobs to make it to the 6 o'clock yoga class. And I'm amused to see Indian clothing becoming popular I rebelled against it as a kid because I wanted to wear jeans. So when I see someone like Madonna sporting the Indian look, it's very ironic to me. I grew up with people saying, ''What's that on your mom's forehead?'' And not in a good way. Jhumpa Lahiri, interviewed in the New York Times magazine . Her first novel, The Namesake , was just published. Posted by Mike on September 9, 2003 3:41 PM Permalink
