First highlighted in The New Yorker fiction issue, here is award-winning writer Nell Freudenberger’s debut story collection. Lucky Girls is a collection of five novella-like stories, which take place mostly in Asia.

A powerful, funny, richly observed tour de force by one of America's most acclaimed young writers: a story of love and marriage, secrets and betrayals, that takes us from the backyards of America to the back alleys and villages of Bangladesh. In The Newlyweds, we follow the story of Amina Mazid, who at age twenty-four moves from Bangladesh to Rochester, New York, for love. From the PEN/Malamud Award-winning author of Lucky Girls comes an intricately woven novel about secrets, love, art, identity, and the shining chaos of every day American life.

Carrie O'Grady on Nell Freudenberger's Lucky Girls, a debut collection that covers all the bases. Nearly every character in each of the five stories is far from home, and the book is spiked with their longing to fit in and their simultaneous, contradictory need to cling to the culture that formed them. It is a truly 21st-century collection, an appreciation of transglobal un-belonging. In the first story, Arun is an older man, the narrator an American woman who fell in love with him eight years previously, when she was just 22. They carry on a long affair beneath the wary eyes of Laxmi, his wife, and Mrs Chawla, his mother.

First highlighted in The New Yorker fiction issue, here is award-winning writer Nell Freudenberger’s debut story collectionLucky Girls is a collection of five novella-like stories, which take place mostly in Asia. The characters—expatriates, often by accident—are attracted to the places they find themselves in a romantic way, or repelled by a landscape where every object seems strange. For them, falling in love can be inseparable from the place where it happens.

Living according to unfamiliar rules, these characters are also vulnerable in unique ways. In the title story, a young woman who has been involved in a five-year affair with a married Indian man feels bound to both her memories and her adopted country after his death. The protagonist of “Outside the Eastern Gate” returns to her childhood home in Delhi, to find a house still inhabited by the impulsive, desperate spirit of her mother, who left her family for a wild journey over the Khyber Pass to Afghanistan. In “Letter from the Last Bastion,” a teenage girl begins a correspondence with a novelist who’s built his reputation writing about his experiences as a soldier in Vietnam and who, in his letters, confides in her a secret about his past.

Highly anticipated in the literary community and beyond, Lucky Girls marks the debut of a very special talent that places her among today’s most gifted young writers.

Captain America
I read the book based on a strong review, but I was greatly disappointed. The stories are all well-written, but after each one, I wondered what I had read. What was the point? What was the author saying? The stories seemed to be about spoiled girls from comfortable families just going aimlessly through life. The girls had no goals, so they could not be faulted for making no effort to reach them. A total waste of time.

Nell Freudenberger is such a good writer that as soon a you begin to read what she's written you no longer think about her. That's as good as any writer can be, and I was delighted to discover her!

I have only read the first two stories so far, and like many reviewers here my feelings are rather lukewarm. I don't find the characters so offensive actually or their lack of development, but am frustrated by the lack of "place" in the stories. Having been to India and Thailand, I can say that the settings of these areas are very vital and vivid and I feel that the stories don't utilize the settings enough. This is only for the first two stories and I understand one of the other ones really does use the setting of the ancestral home effectively. I hope so! I'll give it a go later, but am not enchanted enough to continue at the moment.

I really am. I didn't buy this book- thank God- but I've waited since we've acquired it at our public library- about eight months- to check it out. Let me tell you- it's like opening a Christmas present that has sat under the tree for a month, mysterious and promising, only to find that it's something "practical" or a "great bargain". And of course Lucky Girls was neither of these, even. The writing was bland and too safe-side, completely without imagination. Even the subjects were bland. Freudenberger managed to take a whole country with more allure than 97 percent of the places on this planet and water it down to a mere setting, not much different than my back yard Suburbia (even with all the references to poverty- which were just that: references). And Freudenberger doesn't connect herSELF to her own characters- how can she expect us, as readers, to connect to them?
I predict (and I'll eat my words if things work out to the contrary) that she'll have a novel out within a year and a half. There will be gobs of hype about it, with a lot of false assumptions about the warm reception of her collection of stories to fool readers into feeling they've been waiting for this novel forEVER. And it may even be a bestseller, but the novel will recieve such half-convinced reviews that we'll not be hearing from Freudenberger for a long time after that- or until she's at last found her strengths and weaknesses and worked them out- artistically, that is.
And, by the way, she's a very lovely girl. And sex sells. And all's fair in the publishing industry. The truth obviously comes out- as we've seen just in this small space on Amazon- when people concentrate on the content, but people like Freudenberger need all the head start they can get when they write so dispassionately.

Freaky Hook
Nell Freudenberger is a talented writer with an excellent education and an exceptional professional background, which includes editorial experience at The New Yorker, the magazine that first published her fiction in 2001. Her first collection of long short stories -- "Lucky Girls" -- holds up well as good writing, but the stories are, for the most part, somnolent.
Most of Freundenberger's fiction is set in India, and this gives the collection a strange feel and tone that can be best described as reading Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jhumpa Lahiri's "Interpreter Of Maladies" in a mirror. Here again are upper middle-class characters who have never had a toothache engaging in immoral romantic affairs with married folks and then wondering why their personal lives have become a case study in guilt, neurosis, and dysfunction.
I wish Freudenberger would shack up in a garret for a year and write a diverse collection of tales about the great overlooked mass of average Americans in America. I'm sure she could pen a masterpiece, and a lasting work of art. As it is, "Lucky Girls" is merely the IT title of this one season, and perhaps a figurative description of Freudenberger herself, a lucky girl (woman) who seems to have had her obvious writing talent taken for granted to fulfill the publishing industry's narrow focus of fashionable prose for quarterly profit.
