In the past five decades, numerous literary works by Indian-born writers have placed issues connected to immigration at the center of their narratives. Internationally acclaimed authors like Anita Desai, Bharati Mukherjee, Arundhati Roy, Amitav Ghosh or Salman Rushdie, to mention only a few, have drawn attention to the experience of migration and the traumas often associated with leaving one’s homeland and coming in contact with another culture.
The volume investigates, from an interdisciplinary perspective, the fictional work of Indian-American writer Jhumpa Lahiri. Her primary focus is on narrating second-generation American experiences even though she confessed that while growing up in Rhode Island in the 1970s she felt neither ‘American’ nor ‘Indian’. Nevertheless, in her narratives Lahiri is able to explore both sides of the hyphen. The process of writing thus becomes a means of finding a home and of being at home.
