    For English-language readers, this book has taken the long way home. We need far more -- and far more varied -- depictions of autism. One day, while sitting in a library, Jhumpa conceived her first short story in Italian. She considers, if only in passing, the work of writers who have composed successfully in a second language Nabokov, Beckett, Conrad. The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window into Human Nature reverse-engineers our relationship with language, exploring what the words we use reveal about the way we think. Reading in Italian arouses a similar feeling in me.

    A short work of nonfiction, I rate In Other Words book Other Words 4 stars, only because I wished it could have been longer so I could have spent all the more time with Jhumpa Lahiri's prose. As someone who has learned new languages as both a child and an adult, I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language system while already set in one's ways. In Other Words is the result of Square Peg Stories, a creative writing scheme aimed specifically at autistic writers that took place in London between November and May Every time I read Pride and Prejudice, I want to dig her up and hit her over the skull with her own shin-bone. And what better way to celebrate them than through the written word itself?

    In Other Words written entirely in Italian while living in Italy is Lahiri's first work of nonfiction. With In Other Words book aid of a dictionary, notebook, and a network of peers, she transitioned to reading and writing exclusively in Italian. She considers, if only in passing, the work of writers who have composed successfully in a second language Nabokov, Beckett, Conrad. Lahiri, writing in Italian, at this point seems only a lesser version of herself, a full orchestra reduced to tentative woodwinds. Regardless of the language of her forthcoming books, Lahiri is a gifted writer, one of the outstanding novelists of this generation.
