In Other Words

By Jhumpa Lahiri
Narrated by: Jhumpa Lahiri
Length: 6 hours 52 minutes

In Other Words

“Lahiri traces the origins, tribulations, and tiny victories that have fueled her decades-long courtship with the Italian language in a bilingual memoir that reads more like an intimate diary. The chapters and short stories offer a vivid timeline of Lahiri's turbulent relationship with language, bouncing around from English to Bengali during her childhood, immersing herself in the Italian culture by moving her family overseas, and finally attempting to write a book in a new voice. In Other Words is much more than an attempt -- at self-reflection and reinvention it's a mastery.”

Moments in My Writing Life after Which Everything Was Different

“After listening to the audiobook recording of Consider This, I felt invigorated enough that I almost thought, "Should I write a book?" I'm not a writer, but Palahniuk's tapestry of stories and advice for the craft feels so vibrant and useful that it makes the reader (or listener, in my case) feel prepared to venture into the world of writing, and it reminds us that the most powerful stories are the ones that bring out more stories in the people interacting with it. Palahniuk's words (read with exquisite energy by Edoardo Ballerini in the audiobook) combine his own experiences and advice with stories collected from readers, booksellers, agents, and other authors he's encountered over the years. Whether or not you're a writer, Consider This will engage, titillate, and at times frighten you.”

“Believe it or not, this audiobook is the first book by Colum McCann I have listened to, or read. McCann is an excellent narrator, and this book is the perfect one to listen to, rather than read. McCann's writing and philosophical advice is candid, supportive, and honest. Some of his best advice includes keeping your are in the chair, attacking the white page. doing relentless research your research, and reading widely and deeply. This book is truly a book for all writers, not just young writers or those new to the craft. Colum McCann is not only passionate on giving advice about writing, but he is adamant about the importance of writing in an uncertain time. Highly recommended.”
