WhereaboutsWhereabouts by Jhumpa Lahiri
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“There’s no escape from the shadows that mount, inexorably, in this darkening season. Nor can we escape the shadows our families cast. That said, there are times I miss the pleasant shade a companion might provide.”― Jhumpa Lahiri

Lyrical. Meandering. Poetic. Lonely. Very, very lonely. Beautifully told from the voice of an unnamed female, snippets of her life tell us a bit about where she has been, and where she may be going. This is a little gem of a book. Four stars.
