Since I quit working
Since I quit working at the shop, I’ve stepped up writing. The road to publication was long and difficult. In 2015 “The man with a smile” was nominated for the XXVI Calvino Prize and I managed to publish it. Then came “Lady of the filters”, “A house of wind” (set in my Livorno), “The Last Moon” and “The island of the Hares”.
The pandemic lockdown was a very dark time for me, locked in the house with my mother, who has had more than one stroke and who makes my life impossible. I continue to disagree with my brother and my sister-in-law etc etc.
My writing saved me and now I have three more books coming soon.
