As a reader of Jhumpa's previous book, I will give this a read. I loved and i mean loved her 'Interpreter of Maladies'. Namesake, not as much. It was good, but kinda slow. The movie was OK too although I wasn't sure is Kal Penn as ideal for the role or if he did a great job. It was a beautifully shot movie though, that I must admit.
In a way I am glad Unaccustomed Earth is a book of short stories. If you have read the book, let me know what you think!
