Author Info
Jhumpa Lahiri
Jhumpa Lahiri was born to Indian immigrant parents in London, but the family moved to Rhode Island, where she was raised. She has a B.A. in English literature from Barnard College, but was rejected by the graduate schools she applied to. She did not begin to write fiction until, after college, she worked in an office in Cambridge, where she began writing after hours on the computer there. Eventually, she sent her work to the creative writing program at Boston University, and eventually earned three M.A. degrees--in English, Creative Writing, and Comparative Literature--as well as a Ph.D. in Renaissance Studies. She began publishing stories--her first was in The New Yorker--and her collection, THE INTERPRETER OF MALADIES, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2000.
Ferrante transforms the love, separation and reunion of two poor urban girls into the general tragedy of their city, a place so beautiful and heartbreaking that it inspired the expression 'Vedi Napoli e poi muori' 'See Naples and then die.' "
"A tale of two continents in an era of political tumult, rendered with devastating depth and clarity by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author."
