Umami en Italia!

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.

 

Giulia has also translated my conversation with Valeria Luiselli (originally published in BOMB in English) for the SUR blog.
