Pulitzer Prize–winning Jhumpa Lahiri’s new novel, Whereabouts, is a meditative portrait of a woman wavering between stasis and movement as she wanders the parks, piazzas and cafes of an unnamed European city she calls home. Originally composed in Italian and translated into English by Lahiri herself, it depicts a narrator whose outwardly tranquil life belies deeper unrest, estrangement and longing. Hear from Lahiri as she sheds light on an aching and hypnotic work of fiction in conversation with Emma Alberici.
