Beyond dictionaries

 

I have recently read “A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary For Lovers” by Xiaolu Guo, a sensitive and beautiful account of the intimacies of language and migration.  I highly recommend it, especially if you are also trying to trace those untranslatable feelings under the skin of words.

*Any books that resonate with your experience of migration?  Do share!

*Ps I am (supposed to be) studying for my Portuguese final exam…!
