The lowland : a novel by Jhumpa Lahiri( Book )

117 editions published between 2013 and 2020 in 22 languages and held by 4,368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two brothers bound by tragedy. A fiercely brilliant woman haunted by her past. A country torn by revolution. A love that lasts long past death. An extraordinary new novel, set in both India and America, that expands the scope and range of one of our most dazzling storytellers: the best-selling author of The Namesake and Unaccustomed Earth. Born just fifteen months apart, Subhash and Udayan Mitra are inseparable brothers, one often mistaken for the other in the Calcutta neighborhood where they grow up. But they are also opposites, with gravely different futures ahead. It is the 1960s, and Udayan--charismatic and impulsive--finds himself drawn to the Naxalite movement, a rebellion waged to eradicate inequity and poverty; he will give everything, risk all, for what he believes. Subhash, the dutiful son, does not share his brother's political passion; he leaves home to pursue a life of scientific research in a quiet, coastal corner of America."--Jacket

"India is an inescapable presence in this strong first collection's nine polished and resonant tales, most of which have appeared in The New Yorker and other publications." Kirkus Reviews "Lahiri's touch is delicate yet assured, leaving no room for flubbed notes or forced epiphanies." The Los Angeles Times "[Lahiri] announces herself as a wonderfully distinctive new voice. Indeed, Ms. Lahiri's prose is so eloquent and assured that the reader easily forgets the 'Interpreter of Maladies' is a young writer's first book ... Ms. Lahiri chronicles her characters' lives with both objectivity and compassion while charting the emotional temperature of their lives with tactile precision. She is a writer of uncommon elegance and poise, and with 'Interpreter of Maldies' she has made a precocious debut." The New York Times "Lahiri's touch in these nine tales is delicate, but her observations remain damningly accurate, and her bittersweet stories are unhampered by nostalgia ..." Publishers Weekly "[S]torytelling of surpassing kindness and skill." The San Francisco Chronicle
The Penguin book of Italian short stories by Jhumpa Lahiri( Book )

10 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and Italian and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Jhumpa Lahiri decided to read exclusively in Italian, a language she had studied for many years, her life as a reader - and writer - took a surprising turn. Complete immersion in this rich literary heritage brought fresh insight and unexpected freedom. This collection brings together forty writers that have shaped her love of the Italian language and profound appreciation for its literature. More than half of the stories featured in this volume have been translated into English for the first time and the wide ranging selection includes well known authors such as Italo Calvino, Elsa Morante and Luigi Pirandello, alongside many captivating rediscoveries. The writers that inhabit these pages represent a dynamic cross section of Italian society. Together they reflect over a hundred years of Italy's vibrant and diverse short story tradition, their powerful voices resonating through regional landscapes, private passions and the dramatic political events of the twentieth century." --

Antonello da Messina by Antonello( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antonello da Messina was the first truly European painter and his works raise crucial questions in our understanding of Western art. No other fifteenth-century Italian artist responded in such a direct manner to the unchallenged Flemish masters of Bruges and Brussels, the legends of French painting, and greats in Italy like Piero della Francesca and Mantegna. Antonello da Messina's genius lies in his ability to join this vision with Italian forms and a new notion of space: perspective. This style can be found in his early works, like the Crucifixion (Bucharest), the Salvator Mundi (London, 1465), the Madonna with Child (London) and Saint Jerome in His Study (London). In so doing, he created unique images with a harmonious and geometrical clarity, yet included exquisite descriptive passages. Antonello da Messina is also universally recognised as a formidable portraitist. Exhibition: Palazzo Abatellis, Palermo, Italy (01.10.2018-31.01.2019)
