Roman Stories

Jhumpa Lahiri

<p>From the internationally bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of <i>Interpreter of Maladies</i> comes an exquisitely crafted work of fiction. Jhumpa Lahiri sets her gaze on the eternally beautiful city, illuminating the frailties of the human condition and dissecting lives lived on the margins.<br><br>A man recalls a summer party that awakens an alternative version of himself. A couple haunted by a tragic loss return to seek consolation. An outsider family is pushed out of the block in which they hoped to settle. A set of steps in a Roman neighbourhood connects the daily lives of the city&rsquo;s myriad inhabitants. This is an evocative fresco of Rome, the most alluring character of all: contradictory, in constant transformation and a home to those who know they can&rsquo;t fully belong but choose it anyway.<br><br>Rich with Lahiri&rsquo;s signature gifts, <i>Roman Stories</i> is a masterful work from one of the finest writers of our time.<br><br><i>Translated from the Italian by Jhumpa Lahiri and Todd Portnowitz</i></p>
