Whereabouts by Jhumpa Lahiri 157 pages

Whereabouts is much anticipated new novel by The Pulitzer Prize winning author. Lahiri wrote this short, many chaptered book in Italian and then translated it into English. The unnamed narrator is a single, forty-something women working in academia. As we roam with her around the unnamed city she lives and works in, the reader gets glimpses of her childhood, her day to day activities and the nameless people she encounters.

Jhumpa Lahiri is a wonderful writer who presents a very interesting character who describes herself in short snippets, leaving the reader wanting more details about her life, her thoughts and her opinions.
