In this complex memoir of longing and self-reflection, Jhumpa Lahiri immerses herself in Italian and moves to Rome with her family, where she reinvents herself in the foreign culture. Her dual-language book chronicles her courtship with the language, her interactions with the Italians and the difficulties of linguistic exile. Lahiri also wrote Interpreter of Maladies (IDA243), The Lowland (IDA686) and has won both the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Hemingway Award.  (ITA587, $16.00)
