Texts in the City: Interpreter of Maladies

Texts in the City: Interpreter of Maladies

No matter how compelling a novel or a film might be, if you have to study it, there’s always the risk you’ll end up hating it. Not any more! A gift to VCE students, their teachers (and of course life-long learners) Texts in the City is a weekly exploration of the classic texts – both old and new – that appear on the VCE English reading lists. This week, we look at Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri, with host Ruby Murray and Brass Monkey Books publisher and editor of Readings Books Music Film Kabita Dhara.
