Product description

Review

The only book I read this year in English is The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri. I had never read anything of hers, and it was a wonderful surprise (Elena Ferrante)

Jhumpa Lahiri's new novel is a testament to her abundant talents (Khaled Hosseini)

One of the most impressive writers in the U.S. (Daily Mail)

A writer of uncommon elegance and poise (New York Times)

A writer of formidable powers and great depth of feeling (Observer)

Immaculately constructed and a model of lucidity, well deserving of its place on the Man Booker shortlist (Mail on Sunday)

A fascinating account of her linguistic exile (Erica Wagner Harper’s Bazaar)

Her Italian writing is personal, inward-looking, exploring identity and alienation, anatomising the state of mind of a writer who has more than one "mother tongue" ... This is essentially a literary memoir, a passionate love letter to language and to Italy ... This is a study of transformation - of a writer, and a woman who has forever been trying to improve herself ... For anyone remotely interested in grammar, the chapter on the minefield of Italian prepositions and the past imperfect makes entertaining reading. And there's no academic aridity; the spare, limpid prose of Lahiri's fiction permeates a bold and quirkily engaging self-portrait (Lee Langley Spectator)

Book Description

From the bestselling Booker Prize shortlisted author: a stunning non-fiction debut, written in Italian: a memoir about her encounters living, speaking and writing in a language not her own - her most intimate, revealing and exciting book to date.
