    It was a pleasure to meet the group and hear what
    others had to say about the book.

    It is always a pleasure to hear how others read the book and saw of the characters. The story telling was good despite I could not warm up to some of the characters. As one commented, the writer is definitely a better short story teller.

    Curious as to why this particular restaurant was selected since 1) it's not Indian and 2) it's a hike from the subway. Not a problem for me since I drive but possibly for others.

      We'd been there before and had a good experience. However, I did switch to an option closer to the subway.

      Bear in mind all, that there is no 7 train service between Times Square and 74th Street on this weekend. anyone coming from Astoria should go to the Steinway Street station of the R (or E or F) and go to the Roosevelt Ave station (if you don't want to deal with shuttle buses)

    Not going to be able to make this one =\ Library didn't have the book and hardcover was a little too steep for me. I really wanted to read Lahiri! Oh well, I'll grab the book when it comes out in paperback.

      Understood and sorry to hear that. Incidentally, the PB release date is June 17.

    This is the date of my daughter's dance recital so I can't come, but if the date changes or there is an online post discussion please let me know! Lahiri is one of my favorite authors.

      Sorry you can't make it. We have no formal post discussion but feel free initiate one.
