Wie ich mich ins Italienische verliebte

Die amerikanische Bestsellerautorin Jhumpa Lahiri («Das Tiefland», «Einmal im Leben») hat ein gewagtes Experiment unternommen. Als Sprecherin zweier Sprachen, Englisch und Bengalisch, machte sie sich auf, eine dritte so gut zu lernen, dass sie sie nicht nur fließend sprechen, sondern sogar darin schreiben konnte: das Italienische. Dies ist die Geschichte eines kulturellen und linguistischen Abenteuers. Mit zwei Sprachen wuchs Jhumpa Lahiri auf: In der Familie wurde Bengalisch gesprochen, Lesen und Schreiben lernte sie auf Englisch in den USA. In beiden Sprachen fühlte sie sich nie ganz beheimatet. Doch dann, während einer Florenzreise 1994 – eine jähe, wilde Affäre mit dem Italienischen, einer Sprache, die neue Freiheit, Abenteuer und Unabhängigkeit verhieß. Doch gleich wurden die jungen Liebenden wieder getrennt: Lahiri kehrte zurück nach New York, und jahrelang hielten nur ein kleines Lexikon in ihrer Handtasche sowie der knappen Lebenszeit abgerungene Privatstunden bei wechselnden Lehrerinnen die Flamme am Brennen. Bis sie 2013 – ihr Leben als freie Schriftstellerin machte es möglich – Hals über Kopf mit der gesamten Familie nach Rom zog. Und nun wurde aus Leidenschaft Lebensernst ... Dies ist ein sehr persönliches Buch, die präzise Auseinandersetzung einer Schriftstellerin mit einer Fremdsprache, die langsam zur eigenen Sprache wird, und mit einem Land, das ihre neue Heimat werden soll. Italien! Rom! Die Geschichte! Die Lebensart! Zugleich berührt es große Fragen: Heimat, Identität, was ist das überhaupt, woraus entsteht es? Lahiri tauchte so tief in die Fremdheit der neuen Sprache und Kultur ein, bis sie in der Lage war, ihr erstes Buch auf Italienisch zu schreiben. Hier ist es – im tiefsten Sinne des Wortes eine Liebesgeschichte.
