The Sad Part Was, my book of stories translated to English and published by Tilted Axis Press in the UK, is now available in Italian. It’s published by the Torino-based Add Editore. Feste in Lacrime, the Italian title, is taken from the title of one of the stories in the collection, “The Crying Parties” in English. The collection was translated by Luca Fusari, edited by Ilaria Benini, and illustrated by Alberto Fiocco. Add Editore has been making a wonderful effort to introduce more Asian literature and graphic novels to the attention of Italian readers. I am honored to be presented by them in Italy.
