Biography & Memoir • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

When Pulitzer Prize winner Lahiri began writing in Italian, her relationship with words shifted, becoming more conscious and thoughtful. This audiobook explores aspects of that shift. Sneha Mathan is an excellent narrator; her voice is precise and animated, lending a personal element to the audiobook's tone that makes its subject come alive. The essays are specialized in subject matter, and hearing about language on such a deep level instead of reading the words on a page does present challenges. Indeed, some reflections are explored so meticulously that they may be better suited to print. For those fascinated by how we express our thoughts, Mathan's lovely pace and cadence make this audiobook an irresistible listen. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
