The Other Language

By Francesca Marciano

In this delicious, short story collection, Marciano jumps between the Venice film festival, a remote island in East Africa, an island in Greece, and more, to introduce us to characters struggling with coming to terms with how unexpected life can turn out to be. And how they might negotiate it without losing a sense of themselves in the long run.

Perfect for:

• Readers who love to travel. Even if it’s on an armchair.
• Lovers of lyrical, short story collections.
• Any Italo-phile.

New titles are added on a continuous basis. To recommend or suggest a book, please email me
