Dreaming in Hindi, Coming Awake in Another Language
Katherine Russell Rich
BIOGRAPHY/MEMOIR 2010 PAPER 384 PAGES
Katherine Russell Rich skewers the hilarity and challenges of taking on not just a new language but a new culture in this spirited tale of life in Udaipur. A fine writer with a devilish wit, she thanks "all the bank clerks, restaurant personnel, cybercafe owners and rickshaw drivers who, unbidden, jumped in to fine-tune my Hindi every time I turned around and who, in the process, made me love the country even more than I already did."
