Beginning in America, and spilling back over memories and generations to India, Unaccustomed Earth explores the heart of family life and the immigrant experience. Eight luminous stories — longer and richer than any Jhumpa Lahiri has yet written — take us from America to Europe, India and Thailand as they follow new lives forged in the wake of loss.
