The #1 bestselling memoir that has the adventuresome spirit and redemptive honesty of ‘WILD’ and the absurd hilarity of the best David Sedaris essay!!
Already a top 20 book in several categories!
“I admit it. I failed foreign language class in Italy.”…So begins this rollicking comic adventure where nothing is exactly what it seems. Structured around twenty-four Italian language classes, poet and photographer Jay Desind invites you on a quest that goes backwards and forwards through time, surprises with unexpected humor, and shows an emotional range and honesty in a framework of quirky invention.
It’s a memoir about the consequences of loss and the powerful
redemptive things that happen when you immerse yourself into the accents, idioms, and traditions of other cultures.
In the end, it is nothing what you expect and once finished, everything you wish you had experienced for yourself in a comfortable travel outfit.
Lost in Language shares the bravery and unflinching honesty of Eat, Pray, Love and Cheryl Strayed’s Wild. It’s also absurdly funny like the best David Sedaris essay. What holds it all together is a unique authentic voice that takes the ‘me’ out of memoir and tells a universal story of finding yourself even when no one else is looking for you in the first place.

“A Wonderful read…Always entertaining and surprising.” Karen Divine, artist and author of A Small Amount of Courage
“Praise for this impossible-to-put-down read! A poetic, humorous, deeply authentic Jay accompanies the reader through the pages of this book. It was as though I was watching a painter create his self portrait…back and forth adding new strokes of color, some dark, some outrageously bright…to the present and the past…” Rosamund Clarke, artist
