Pulitzer Prize Winner Jhumpa Lahiri Ready With Her New Book
Jhumpa Lahiri is ready with her new book ‘Whereabouts’, which is expected to hit the stands in April this year.
It will be the Pulitzer Prize-winning author’s first work after a gap of eight years, her previous novel being ‘The Lowland’.
The English translation of her first Italian novel, ‘Whereabouts’ will be published by Penguin Random House, under the Hamish Hamilton imprint, The Indian Express reported.
‘Whereabouts’ is about a woman and her remarkable journey in life.
“I am so grateful to Meru Gokhale and to all at Penguin Random House India for following me on my creative journey and publishing this new novel, born from my love of a new language.”
Meru Gokhale, Publisher, Penguin Press, described Lahiri’s upcoming book as a true literary event.
“Jhumpa Lahiri is that rare writer who can effortlessly evoke the details of time and space with stark, minimal prose, saying so much by saying so little. Her new novel is a true literary event, and we are delighted to publish it,” said Gokhale.
Lahiri won the Pulitzer in 2000 for ‘Interpreter of Maladies,’ a short story collection.
