Interpreter of Maladies - Jhumpa Lahiri I feel kind of bad giving this collection 2 stars but it really was "just OK."

Lahiri's not a bad writer but I just never connected with any of her stories in any way.

That said, if the last story were the only one, I'd have given it 3 stars for the character of Mrs. Croft; and there are interesting parts in other selections. Like the little boy in "Sexy" or the tour guide in "Interpreter of Maladies."

I didn't waste my time reading any of these stories but I'm not going to be going out of my way to read anything else by this author.
