Words and something more

In Other Words

In Other Words - Jhumpa Lahiri, Ann Goldstein As a professional who writes in a different language than his mother tongue, Lahiri's short book 'In Other Words' seemed to spoke to me directly. I, too, am anxious about making grammar errors(that translated in my language seemed correct) and about using 'textbook' language instead of more ordinary words. This is my first JL book, so I hope her novels are just as great.
