New York Magazine has named Pulitzer Prize winning author Jhumpa Lahiri a New York Award recipient for her ability to display "the knowingness of the native with the newcomer's openness to eery detail." Lahiri is one of ten New Yorker's "who made the city's show go on," along with Senator Hillary Clinton, and Hip-Hop all-rounder P. Diddy."

Also, if you haven't already, read her newest, The Namesake, a New York Times best seller and Notable Book of the Year.
