by Jhumpa Lahiri

Available as: print book

Jhumpa Lahiri learned Italian as an adult, following notoriety as a writer of fiction, she turned towards non-fiction to explore language, research and the art of the essay.  This collection of candid, disarming and deeply personal essays bring us into the room with her as she reflects on her chosen identity as a translator and writer in two languages.  Drawing on ancient texts, Lahiri explores the distinction that exists between writing one’s own words and translating.  A meditation in both a linguistic and personal metamorphosis.
