    Interpreter of Maladies is a collection of thematically linked short stories dealing with brief relationships between people. Familial, platonic, and romantic relationships make up the bulk of the collection's subject matter. Globalization, materialism, and the role of India in the emerging global culture are also prominent themes. The collection's nine stories feature a largely Indian cast of characters, focusing heavily on immigration from India to the Western world and on the lives of Indian immigrants abroad.
