“Gorgeous. . . . Lahiri gives us the most unusual of self-portraits.” —The New York Times Book Review

“As much a work of poetry as prose. . . . Beautiful.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
 
“Magnificent. . . . [In Other Words] puts one in the company of a beautiful mind engaged in a sustained and bracing discipline.” —Los Angeles Times

“Urgent and raw.” —O, The Oprah Magazine
 
“In Lahiri’s hands, these essays and stories become an invaluable insight into the craft of writing not as storytelling but as speaking the self into existence.” —San Francisco Chronicle
