This memoir about learning a language integrates information about languages and language learning in a relatively interesting way. The author creates a vivid picture of her life in India. But at times I felt that there were too many small details about her personal life, and similarly her meandering approach was sometimes unnecessarily confusing. I also think she missed a few opportunities to more accurately explain linguistic information, particularly about the sign language used by the students at a school for the deaf that she visited.
