Biographies & Autobiographies

This extraordinary memoir illuminates with wit and wisdom the transformative power of learning a new language. At a time when her life has buckled out from under her, Rich, a magazine editor in the US, accepts a writing assignment in India, where she is seduced by the idea of mastering Hindi. In this inspirational story of reclamation, Rich documents her experiences ranging from the bizarre to the unexpectedly exhilarating during which Hindi becomes the lens through which she is given a perspective not only on India, but on the radical way the country and the language itself are changing her. This is Rich's personal journey, described in vivid and often hilarious detail.
