I am taking a six-week writing course at the Asian American Writer's Workshop with the writer Meera Nair (no, not the filmmaker and yes, they have the same name). She wrote a short story collection called VIDEO. I haven't read it yet. I recently put it on hold from my library. I heard it's good. She caught the wave after Jhumpa Lahiri so she wasn't as publicized I guess.
