Description

It is a real treat to welcome the brilliant Jhumpa Lahiri to Daunt Books to discuss her latest collection of short stories, Roman Stories.

This exquisitely crafted work of fiction is a sensual and evocative tribute to the Eternal City, illuminating the frailties of the human condition and dissecting lives lived on the margins. The book is an evocative fresco of Rome, the most alluring character of all the tales: a place that is contradictory, in constant transformation and a home to those who know they can’t fully belong but choose it anyway.

Rich with Lahiri’s signature gifts, Roman Stories is a masterful work from one of the finest writers of our time.

Jhumpa Lahiri is the internationally bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the novels Interpreter of Maladies, The Namesake and Whereabouts amongst others. She also writes about the art of translation in Translating Myself and Others and In Other Words. 

Joining Jhumpa in conversation is the journalist and author Fiammetta Rocco. She is Senior Editor of The Economist and runs the International Booker Prize.

Jhumpa Lahiri is not able to sign books after the talk, but will be pre-signing stock for purchase on the night, or via pre-order.

Ticket price includes a glass of wine or a soft drink.
