In Other Words 9781408866115 by Jhumpa Lahiri by Jhumpa Lahiri
fruugo.co.uk
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 afterwards true mastery had always eluded her. Seeking full immersion she decided to move to Rome with her family for a trial by fire a s  read more

The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri

SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2013. From Subhash's earliest memories, at every point, his brother was there. In the suburban streets of Calcutta where they wandered before dusk and in the hyacinth-strewn ponds where they played for hours on end, Udayan was always in his older brother's sight. So close in age, they were inseparable in childhood and yet, as the years pass - as U.S tanks roll into Vietnam and riots sweep across India - their brotherly bond can do nothing to forestall the tragedy that will upend their lives. Udayan - charismatic and impulsive - finds himself drawn to the Naxalite movement, a rebellion waged to eradicate inequity and poverty. He will give everything, risk all, for what he believes, and in doing so will transform the futures of those dearest to him: his newly married, pregnant wife, his brother and their parents. For all of them, the repercussions of his actions will reverberate across continents and seep through the generations that follow.Epic in its canvas and intimate in its portrayal of lives undone and forged anew, The Lowland is a deeply felt novel of family ties that entangle and fray in ways unforeseen and unrevealed, of ties that ineluctably define who we are. With all the hallmarks of Jhumpa Lahiri's achingly poignant, exquisitely empathetic story-telling, this is her most devastating work of fiction to date.  read more
