National Best Seller From the best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner, a powerful nonfiction debut-an "honest, engaging, and very moving account of a writer searching for herself in words." -Kirkus Reviews (starred) In Other Words is a revelation. It is at heart a love story-of a long and sometimes difficult courtship, and a passion that verges on obsession: that of a writer for another language. For Jhumpa Lahiri, that love was for Italian, which first captivated and capsized her during a trip to Florence after college. Although Lahiri studied Italian for many years afterward, true mastery always eluded her. Seeking full immersion, she decides to move to Rome with her family, for "a trial by fire, a sort of baptism" into a new language and world. There, she begins to read, and to write-initially in her journal-solely in Italian. In Other Words, an autobiographical work written in Italian, investigates the process of learning to express oneself in another language, and describes the journey of a writer seeking a new voice. Presented in a dual-language format, this is a wholly original book about exile, linguistic and otherwise, written with an intensity and clarity not seen since Vladimir Nabokov: a startling act of self-reflection and a provocative exploration of belonging and reinvention.

The Dangerous Islands: Julia Probyn, Book 4 , H...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Julia Probyn-an old friend of many readers-is sailing off the west coast of Scotland. On the desolate island of Erinish Beg, she and her cousin are startled to see a sky-blue pole rise up out of the ground at their feet. Military Intelligence sends Colonel Jamieson to investigate this find. The action moves from the Erinishes to a tweed-shop in Tobermory, an archaeological dig on Lewis, an island off the County Mayo, and finally to a dramatic end in the Scillies. The mystery of the sky-blue pole is solved soon enough; but there is much journeying, heart-searching and danger for Julia before the whole system of espionage is laid bare. During these events Julia, more and more attracted to Colonel Jamieson, finds in him the man she will marry. Miss Bridge's many admirers will warm to this tale of love and adventure, full of authentic local colour, well informed about the cold war of science on which its plot is based. Ann Bridge (1889-1974), or Lady Mary Dolling (Sanders) O’Malley was born in Hertfordshire. Bridge’s novels concern her experiences of the British Foreign Office community in Peking in China, where she lived for two years with her diplomat husband. Her novels combine courtship plots with vividly-realized settings and demure social satire. Bridge went on to write novels around a serious investigation of modern historical developments. In the 1970s Bridge began to write thrillers centred on a female amateur detective, Julia Probyn, as well writing travel books and family memoirs. Her books were praised for their faithful representation of foreign countries which was down to personal experience and thorough research. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elizabeth Jasicki.

The author, journalist, television commentator, and longtime Washington insider reflects on the spiritual quest that has brought deeper meaning to her life - and kept her grounded within the high-powered political world of Washington, DC's elite - her renowned writing career, her celebrity marriage, and her legendary role as doyenne of the capital's social scene. In this emotionally involving, illuminating memoir, the legendary Washington Post journalist and author talks candidly about her life at the white-hot center of power and the surprising spiritual quest that has driven her for more than half a century. While working as a reporter, caring for a learning-disabled son with her husband, longtime Washington Post executive editor Benjamin Bradlee, reigning over the capital's social scene, and remaining intimately connected with national politics, Sally Quinn yearned to understand what truly made the world - and her life - tick. After years of searching, most of which occurred in the secular capital of the world, she came to realize that the time she spent with friends and family - the evenings of shared hospitality and intimate fellowship - provided spiritual nourishment and that this theme has been woven into all the most important moments of her life. In this spiritual memoir, Quinn speaks frankly about her varied, provocative spiritual experiences - from her Southern family of Presbyterians and psychics to voodoo lessons from her Baptist nanny; her trials as a hospitalized military kid in Japan as the Korean War begins; her adventures as a Post reporter and columnist; her experience as one of the first female news anchors on national television; her battles with the Nixon administration, Watergate, and other scandals that have rocked the nation; her courtship with and long marriage to one of the most authoritative figures in the media; her role as the capital's most influential hostess; and her growing fascinatio 1.
