Jhumpa Lahiri in Conversation with Professor Ombretta Frau

Pulitzer prize winning author Jhumpa Lahiri's intense desire to learn Italian inspired a bold decision. Seeking true immersion, she moved to Rome in 2012 with her Family. Her non-fiction debut, In altre parole, is a provocative exploration of the power of language to transform—and reinvent—one's voice and sense of self. In spring 2016 Ms. Lahiri visited our campus and this is her interview with Professor Ombretta Frau.
