Prawer Jhabvala has written an interesting and sometimes humorous collection of stories of restless often rootless people. Settings include both her home countries of the US and India. Even for a person who normally doesn’t choose short stories, I found them interesting. The stories are often open-ended, which I find frustrating, but in the end this allows the reader to participate in the writing by imagining the ending as they want. ( )
