After I read The Namesake, I tried to wait a bit before checking out other books by the same author to have some distance between this incredible reading experience and whatever I read next by the author.
I think I waited a week before I went to the library and checked out the other two books.
This is a collection of short stories, and I don't tend to like reading short stories. However, I liked these. The author's writing seems so effortless and the stories are so human. Check it out.
