A beautiful account of rediscovering identity in language.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Lost in Translation: A Life in a New Language (Paperback)
I fell in love with this book. For anyone,like myself,who has ever been uprooted and lost their sense of home,identity and language this is a must.Hoffmann knows best what it means that 'language is the only homeland' ( Czeslav Milosw). As a counsellor ,I would recommend this to anyone trying to understand the experience of immigration and loss of identity.
