Now that it all seems set and ready to go, after many wonderful and a couple of not-so-wonderful adventures, finally it appears that a children’s book — written by me, illustrated by Daniela Tordi — will be published in Italy next year. In March, I think. It’s called Elynora, and it’s about a mother and her son and their extraordinary life (and death) and life. Hard to explain without giving it away, and I wouldn’t want to ruin it for all those Italian kids who keep up with this commentary. Daniela Tordi is an amazing illustrator, and (though we’ve yet to meet) clearly an amazing woman. It’s a beautiful book thanks to her.
Thank you, Daniela.
For those keeping score, this is the second book of mine that’s been published in a foreign country without first being published in this one. (See here for the first.) Two books. Isn’t that a little weird? I think so.
Okay. Here’s the cover for Elynora!
