Insomnia Reading

Insomnia has its upside. I finished Jhumpa Lahiri's collection of short stories, the interpreter of maladies. I thought the title story was weaker than some of the others. When Mr. Pirzada Came to Dine really, really wowed me. It revealed an universal immigrant experience. Or maybe an experience peculiar to immigrants to the US of a certain age. (Lahiri and I are born a year apart and both immigrated to the US as young children.)
