    Description

    In Other Words is at heart a love story - of a writer's passion for another language. For Jhumpa Lahiri, that love was for Italian, which first captivated her during a trip to Florence after college. Although Lahiri studied Italian for many years afterward, true mastery eluded her. So in 2012, she decided to move to Rome where she began to read, and to write - initially in her journal - solely in Italian. In Other Words, an autobiographical work written in Italian, investigates the process of learning to express oneself in another language and describes the journey of a writer seeking a new voice.

    Beautifully crafted.

    I had and will always be an ardent aficionado of Jhumpa Lahiri. This book was so touching. I realized that language is how much important for a person to stay alive. It's a key to freedom. Thank you for this book. It was beautifully crafted.

    To the love of Language!

    One of the most personal relationship books I have ever come across, simply the best since it outlines the way the relationship is taken forward, quite a few times it looks as if this is the way love works, may be courtship too.

    It’s the growing of the bonds between the seeker and the one which is sought perhaps, here its the language which is being learnt by the author, the language is Italian!

    It is quite a revelation at a very personal level for the author the way Italian language grasps...

    Introspective

    A reflective account of the author as she tries to gain authority over a foreign language, and ultimately realising her inability of her ability to do so, while she stays in Rome, Italy. The author starts to write solely in Italian, and maintains a sort of diary. The book is the result of the diary.
    Lahiri's first venture into the non-fiction world, that too in a non dominant language, the book is a commendable piece of work. The translation into english from italian by Ann Goldstein, rather...

    Favourite author does it again

    She has written the most brave, intimate book about her desire to learn Italian.
    She describes her state of deprivation.
    She defines, how just a word can have many dimensions, many nuances,great complexity, so, too, can a life.
    One big take away from this book is that you will definitely think of the road not taken , if you're contemplating something in your mind in-order to push through the maximum possible boundary.
