Debut novelist Valeria Vescina launches her first work at the festival, That Summer in Puglia – a story of love, loss, self-deception and the power of compassion.
The novel is the story of Tommaso who is tracked down by private investigator Will and has to face the truth of traumatic events from 30 years ago. The setting of Puglia with its layers of history is integral to the story.
Vescina is from Puglia and has lived for many years with her family in London. She has an MA in creative and life writing and has taken up writing after a successful career in management.
Here she talks to lecturer and tutor in Italian at Keble College Teresa Franco.
This event is part of Italian day at the festival.
