Jhumpa Lahiri & Michael Reynolds present TRICK by Domenico Starnone
Jhumpa Lahiri launches her translation of Trick, a novel by Domenico Starnone
In Conversation with Michael Reynolds, Editor in Chief of Europa Editions

Trick is a stylish locked-room drama about ambition, family, and old-age that goes beyond the ordinary and predictable. Imagine a duel between two men. One, Daniele Mallarico, is a successful illustrator who, in the twilight of his years, feels that his reputation and his artistic prowess are fading. The other, Mario, is Daniele's four-year-old grandson. Shut inside his childhood home, an apartment in the center of Naples that is filled with the ghosts of Mallarico's past, grandfather and grandson match wits as Daniele heads toward a reckoning with his own ambitions and life choices. Outside the apartment, pulses Naples, a wily, violent, and passionate city whose influence can never be shaken.

Lahiri will be joined by Michael Reynolds, Editor in Chief of Europa, for a discussion of her luminous new translation, her decision to live her creative life in a third language (Italian), the chaos and creativity of translation, and more.

Jhumpa Lahiri is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Interpreter of Maladies. Her books include The Namesake, Unaccustomed Earth, The Lowland, and, most recently, In Other Words, an exploration of language and identity. She is the translator of Starnone's Ties.

Domenico Starnone was born in Naples and lives in Rome. He is the author of thirteen works of fiction, including First Execution (Europa, 2009), Via Gemito, winner of Italy's most prestigious literary prize, the Strega, and Ties (Europa, 2017), a New York Times Editors Pick and Notable Book of the Year, and a Sunday Times and Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year.
