Pickpick

This is a mixture of memoir and academia as Lahiri explores the how to or challenges in translating writing into other languages. Her vocabulary is impressive. Her point of the beauty of knowing more than one idioma/ lingue/ language so one can find a more precise word to communicate, translation as a method to read the authors of other cultures, and translating thoughts into another language as self introspection was inspiring and compelling.

I had no knowledge of this author but love some of the things she has said or written looking at my research.

This quote sums up what reading does to readers. This is why I love reading, & even more so than films or TV. On films & tv you are watching someone else‘s interpretation of words, & not the effect those words have on you. We all interact so differently to books even with those who share reading interests. #AugustAuthors #JhumpaLahiri

MicheleinPhilly Oh she is extraordinary. I ❤️ her. 2y
Andrew65 @MicheleinPhilly My research certainly made me want to read her books, thanks for the recommendation. 2y
Ruthiella Her short story collections are really great...and I don‘t typically even like short stories! 2y
