"Navigating between the Indian traditions they've inherited and the baffling new world, the characters in Jhumpa Lahiri'selegant, touching stories seek love beyond the barriers of culture and generations. In A Temporary Matter, published in The New Yorker, a young Indian-American couple faces the heartbreak of a stillborn birth while their Boston neighborhood copes with a nightly blackout. In the title story, an interpreter guides an American family through the India of their ancestors and hears an astonishing confession. Lahiri writes with deft cultural insight reminiscent of Anita Desai and a nuanced depth that recalls Mavis Gallant. She is an important and powerful new voice." (From Amazon.com)
ABOUT THE ART ACCESS BOOK GROUP:
The Art Access Book Group has investigated how and why people with disabilities, and other underrepresented populations, have been depicted in literary texts and considers the historical, social, and cultural impact of these depictions. Selected texts coincide with annual themes explored in other Art Access programs.
The Art Access Book Group meets at Art Access, 230 South 500 West, Suite 110. Sessions are FREE and open to the public, but are limited to 18 registered participants in each session. The group is facilitated by Susan Anderson, literary scholar and consultant for Art Access.
A few copies of each book are available from Art Access and may be borrowed for a limited time.* Personal copies also maybe purchased by participants or borrowed from local libraries. If you have questions about accessing texts, please contact Elise Butterfield at [email protected].
