Interviews "Interview with Jhumpa Lahiri." Interview with Arun Aguiar. PIF. 13 Apr. 2009 <http://www.pifmagazine.com/SID/598/>. This interview reveals Lahiri’s personal opinion about the stories she wrote as well as information pertaining to how different audiences (Indian vs. non-Indian, women vs. men) respond to the short stories. This is helpful because if I decide to write about the second prompt, it touches on globalization and how different people living in different cultures and countries can relate to the same story. The source provides background information on Jhumpa Lahiri’s life: where she grew up, how she became a writer, what inspired her to write such works. The article is written in a question-answer format, in which Jhumpa Lahiri not only summarizes her stories, but she also reveals her writing tendencies and the reasons why she portrayed characters the way they arein her stories. The source is useful in regards to the second prompt which deals with globalization. Although it does not directly touch on globalization or transnationalism, the article can be used to show the author’s attitude and beliefs expressed throughout the short stories. Lahiri, Jhumpa. "Migration, Assimilation, and Inebriation." Interview. BookForum 015_01/2250>. In this interview between BookForum and Jhumpa Lahiri, themes such as  migration, assimilation, and alcohol are addressed. BookForum asks Lahiri about  the inspiration for her short stories in “Interpreter of Maladies” and in  “Unaccustomed Earth”.  They also ask about how Lahiri reacts to first- and  second-generation Indians, especially in relation to the stories “Unaccustomed  Earth” and “Hell-Heaven.” This source can be used to gain further insight on  Jhumpa Lahiri herself and about what themes are important to her; this can lead  to deeper analysis of themes in her stories.
