Jhumpa Lahiri: In Other Words
Clip | 5m 58s
Jhumpa Lahiri won the Pulitzer Prize in her early 30s; since then, she wrote a novel that became a movie and won the National Humanities Medal. But the Bengali-American writer still felt that she was a linguistic orphan. Then she discovered Italian. Lahiri wrote her latest book in Italian, which she feels has given new life to her writing. "In Other Words" is now available in a bilingual edition.
