Produktbeskrivning

Recension

“A quietly bracing work of fiction . . . This is arguably Lahiri’s most beautifully written novel.”
—Jennifer Wilson, The Nation
 
Whereabouts is rendered in short, journal-like fragments so strongly and rightly voiced that other books sound wrong when you turn to them."
—Claire Dederer, The Atlantic
 
Lahiri writes with subtlety and delicacy.”
—Heller McAlpin, NPR
 
“Another masterstroke in a career already filled with them.”
—O, the Oprah Magazine


“Whereabouts signals a new mode for Lahiri, and a daring transformation . . . It feels true and wise to the core.”
—Anderson Tepper, Los Angeles Times

“Subtle and stirring . . . A fascinating departure in cadence and form for Lahiri. Whereabouts [is written with] the sort of deft hand so few can properly wield: it evokes the sort of slow thrum of despair and loneliness so few can manage well. But Lahiri is no ordinary writer. There’s a calming sense of comfort one finds in the solitude experienced by our main character, largely due to the exactness of Lahiri’s writing. Poetic as she is and always has been, seemingly innocuous turns of phrase cut to the core, while descriptions of light and darkness take you aback and make you swoon. Elegantly observed and often beautifully sad . . . Whereabouts will stay with you longer than you anticipate.”
—Alicia Lutes, USA Today

“Hypnotic…a book [whose] peculiar magnetism lies in its clash of candour and coyness.”
—Anthony Cummins, The Guardian

“Skillful… Lahiri's sentences are honed to minimalist beauty. A loose narrative emerges of an Italian woman at a crossroads in her life . . . The chapters detail encounters, but other humans are like passing shadows. The pain of the narrator’s isolation feels extremely real.”
—Madeleine Thien, The New York Times Book Review

“Lahiri’s prose shimmers with precise detail. Whether it’s an American-born son misunderstanding his Bengali father’s wishes in The Namesake or an Indian guide seeing dangers that American tourists cannot in Interpreter of Maladies, Lahiri has demonstrated that she is a master of cultural collisions. Whereabouts returns to her ever-present theme, now in an Italian setting, of the terrors and joys wrought by bridging worlds.”
—L.A. Taggart, San Francisco Chronicle

“Fresh, unique . . . Lahiri [has] stretched the form of the novel. Wandering through an anonymous life, seeing things through one person’s eyes, is enjoyable . . . At one point the narrator becomes as voyeuristic as her readers, following a stranger on the street and asking herself, ‘What’s her face like? Has she always lived here, like me?’ Each chapter floats by quickly, [with] sparse and lyrical prose.”
—Rob Merrill, Associated Press
  
“Some books leave you with a feeling for which there are no words, or at least no words in English that you know of. Jhumpa Lahiri’s Whereabouts is one of those books. The feeling closest to what is evoked by this beautifully crafted novel is a stroll during the blue hour on the first warm evening of spring. A jewel of a book.”
—Arlene McKanic, BookPage
  
“Elegant . . . Lyrical . . . Beautiful.”
—Michael Magras, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
 
“A gorgeous, contemplative read . . . Poetic prose that invites you to linger over the words.”
—Real Simple, “Best Books of 2021 (so far)”

"A meditative and aching snapshot of a life in suspension... Lahiri’s poetic flourishes and spare, conversational prose are on full display. This beautifully written portrait of a life in passage captures the hopes, frustrations, and longings of solitude and remembrance."
—Publishers Weekly [starred review]

“Painterly… exquisitely detailed… [Lahiri’s] language seems to have been sieved through a fine mesh, each word a gleaming gemstone. Such expressive refinement perfectly embodies Lahiri’s narrator, who lives alone in an unnamed Italian city [and] examines her life in first-person vignettes… There is melancholy here, but these concentrated, poignant, and rueful episodes also pulse with the narrator's devotion to observation and her pushing through depression to live on her terms. She exalts in her lively neighborhood, in the country beneath skies as moody as she is, and by the tempestuous sea, all while recording her stealthy battle against her tendency to burrow into her shell. An incisive and captivating evocation of the nature and nexus of place and self.”
—Donna Seaman, Booklist

"Elegant, subtle, and sad... Its spare, reflective prose and profound interiority recall the work of Rachel Cusk and Sigrid Nunez."
Kirkus

5,0 av 5 stjärnor Loved it.
Granskad i Indien den 9 maj 2021
A mid-age woman with a fairly successful academic career lives alone in a lovely neighbourhood of an unnamed city. This woman has a quiet life but has so many activities to fill her mundane routine.
Fascinated by stationery and her own thoughts.

Some friends, colleagues, lovers, and neighbours.

A piazza. Parties. A bunch of strangers.

Old mum who also lives alone, dead father. A strained relationship with parents.

One city, another city. The transition, the feeling of connectedness.

That’s pretty much it. Nothing more.

But there's a lot!

Reading Whereabouts felt like a moral crime, as it was nothing short of reading a personal journal of someone without their knowledge. Maybe because the pattern of snippets here is quite similar to how I journal - Random life details with no names and no specifications, just a record of what happened and what was on my mind. In this context, this book felt very personal. So much so that I read my older journal along with this book. Felt good to reconnect with me. The details vary, without a doubt.

This book celebrates solitude, the concept that most people often confuse with loneliness. For me, solitude means not having known people around me and to be very honest whereabouts portrayed the idea of solitude that way. Another reason to connect with this book on a very personal level.

As for the title, it is very much apt. We trace the narrator’s whereabouts, knowing her life, her routine, people she knows, people who know her, and the thoughts in her head. I felt like stepping out of my comfort zone while reading this and oh boy, I loved the feeling. I never knew I could enjoy the thoughts in someone’s head at discrete places. And what brilliant language is used to convey those thoughts!

This may not be the best kind of read for everyone because there isn't a story or structure. It is trifling to find one in such scattered details. Lahiri’s writing oozes a lot of things that I adored. The writing isn’t sharp, it’s delicate and beyond sumptuous. The structure is different. I don’t know the target audience but I think the probable ones are you and me. Go treat yourself. I see future me coming back to a lot of chapters in this book.
