Cultural Chasms in Lahiri's 'Unaccustomed Earth'

Fresh Air book critic Maureen Corrigan reviews Jhumpa Lahiri's Unaccustomed Earth, a new collection of short stories that chronicles the cultural alienation that exists between Indian-born parents and their American-born children.

Lahiri is the author of The Namesake and Interpreter of Maladies, for which she was awarded the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
