Lost in Translation: A Life in a New Language
Eva Hoffman's book describes her childhood divided between Poland/US and speaking Polish and English. If you've ever lived in another country and spoken another language, this book can explain the dissociation of living in a foreign language. Hoffman's writing is very good and the subject of the book is something that fascinates me. I've lived outside the US several times and now work in a multinational lab where I, as a native English speaker, am in a minority of one.
