When Mr. Pirzada Came to Dine — Jhumpa Lahiri. A young Pakistani girl named Lilia is living in New England. It is when her and her parents meet their new neighbor Mr. He frequently visits their home for dinner, and becomes an integral part of their family. Even though the neighbors share a cultural connection, the war in Pakistan creates tension between them.
Lilia learns how war can create fear and uncertainty, even when you live far away from the conflict. I liked the first story of the anthology better than this one, but I still enjoyed reading this. This story is about a young girl, Lilia, who lives with her parents. A man named Mr.
After getting to know him a little bit more she understands that his family is living in war in India or Pakistan. He brings her candy, and she cherishes everything from him.
I think the theme of loss and longing is prevalent, and it seemed more real because it was coming from a young girl. I really felt empathy for Mr. I wanted him to feel better and be happy! I really enjoyed Lilia as a character because she was vulnerable in just the right ways. She also valued everything that she had in her possession, but was never greedy. I think that was an interesting trait to give her, but it worked well with the story.
I look forward to reading more by Jhumpa Lahiri! You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
