National Best Seller

From the best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner, a powerful nonfiction debut – an “honest, engaging, and very moving account of a writer searching for herself in words.” – Kirkus Reviews(starred)

In Other Words is a revelation. It is at heart a love story – of a long and sometimes difficult courtship, and a passion that verges on obsession: that of a writer for another language. For Jhumpa Lahiri, that love was for Italian, which first captivated and capsized her during a trip to Florence after college. Although Lahiri studied Italian for many years afterward, true mastery always eluded her.
