Interpreter of Maladies

This book of short stories concerns Indians who are new to the United States or are first-generation Americans. They deal with their sense of foreignness while coping with the problems that people endure all over the world—infidelity, betrayal, loss of cultural roots, stillborn babies and more. A good choice when the teacher asks you to read a “multicultural book,” this collection of short works is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize.


About Victoria Waddle

I'm a high school librarian, formerly an English teacher. I love to read and my mission is to connect people with the right books. To that end, I read widely--from the hi-lo for reluctant high school readers to the literary adult novel for the bibliophile.
