內容簡介


暢銷作家、普立茲獎得主Jhumpa Lahiri推出首部非小說作品,更首度以義大利語寫作,以英義雙語對照呈現

「一部真摯、自貶且無比動人的篇章,呈現一位作家以文字尋找自我的過程。」—— Kirkus書評

大學畢業後,Jhumpa Lahiri到佛羅倫斯旅行,義大利語從此深深使她著迷。她花了許多年學習義大利語,卻無法精通。為了讓自己沉浸於全義語的環境,她與家人搬到羅馬,為的是在新的語言與世界中,接受「火的試煉,也是某種受洗」。她開始閱讀義大利語,只以義大利語寫作。

她的成果便是呈現在讀者眼前、以義大利語完成的自傳式作品。它探索學習以另一種語言表達自己的過程,以及身為一名作家,試圖尋找新聲音的旅程。本書在某種程度上,是一部愛情故事:一部表達作者對一種語言熱愛的愛情故事。

本書以英義雙語格式對照呈現,極其強勁與透徹的筆觸,堪稱為繼納博科夫後的第二人,漫長且遭遇阻礙的重重難關,對義大利語的熱情幾乎等同於迷戀,Jhumpa Lahiri寫出探索流浪、語言學、自我揭露、歸屬與重塑的驚人之作。

Jhumpa Lahiri以出道之作《醫生的翻譯員》(Interpreter of Maladies) 於2000年獲得普立茲獎,作品《同名之人》(The Namesake) 曾被改編為電影,《低地的風信子》(The Lowland) 獲選為2013年英國曼布克獎決選作品。她擅長藉由描寫生活點滴,呈現移民的內心掙扎、迷惑與痛苦,以其獨有的詩意與細緻的筆法,在文壇占有一席之地。


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.
