Short stories about Indians, mostly Bengali, most of whom are immigrants to America. i love "This Blessed House," finding it instructive to me & TT, a matched pair who delight in small things and are both spontaneous and curious and like to walk hand in hand to nowhere to eat ice cream. some stories make me doubt my heart, doubt love and marriage and fidelity, and make me glad to have married late and for love and with my own self intact. the last story, "The Third & Final Continent," is about an immigrant to Boston who boards for 6 weeks in 1969 with a hundred three year old lady. the final paragraph is stunningly evocative, making me think of my own forbears: “Whenever [my son] is discouraged, i tell him that if i can survive on three continents, then there is no obstacle he cannot conquer. While the astronauts, heroes forever, spent mere hours on the moon, i have remained in this new world for nearly thirty years. I know that my achievement is quite ordinary. i am not the only man to seek his fortune far from home, and certainly i am not the first. still, there are times i am bewildered by each mile i have travelled, each meal i have eaten, each person i have known, each room in which i have slept. as ordinary as it all appears, there are times when it is beyond my imagination.”
