As of May 11th Umami is out in Italy and it looks like it's already finding its readers. Yesterday, Michela Murgia, a well known Italian novelist reviewed it in Quante Storie a program on Italian television RAI.
We will also have a book tour (my first ever!) this summer and I am very very much looking forward to it all. So I would like to say grazie mille to Giulia Zavagna (translator and editor) and Edizioni Sur (the publishing house) for making all of this possible.
