A little while ago, some of the pieces from my book Look Who’s Morphing were translated into Italian. The translator, Elena Carletti (a wonderful intern at Giramondo Publishing), has also been very proactive in submitting these works to Italian literary journals. Coming up soon, two pieces will be published – along with some photos showing a few locations where I like to write – at a journal called Storie.
But even sooner than that, an online journal, Il Paradiso Degli Orchi, has just published my piece The Exorcist, now known as L’esorcista. Check it out:
P.S. I grew up in a neighbourhood that had a strong Italian community and I learnt Italian at school so I recognise some of the words in the piece – especially, I admit, the swear words. (The swearing works well in Italian.)
