After reading ‘the namesake’ I became a fan of Lahiri’s writing style. I bought this book because the fragrance of the namesake is still alive in my bookshelf and in my heart. ‘In other words’ is all about how Lahiri learned Italian, moved to Rome and finally wrote a book in Italian which was translated by Ann Goldstein( the version I read).
This book is more than just a memoir, its about a writer’s beautiful journey and struggle to not only conquer the language but also to cross the cultural and even identity barriers.
This book represents a decorative interior of words, Just ‘In Other Words’!
