About this product
- DescriptionThe Girl from Vajont (published as La ragazza di Vajont in 2008), Avoledo's sixth novel, is the first to be translated into English. It's an unusual love story set in the Friuli region, a Friuli beset by civil war, political instability and ethnic cleansing. Can love exist in such a climate? The novel is accompanied by an interview with the author.
- Author BiographyTullio Avoledo (1957-), from Pordenone in the Friuli region of north-east Italy, published his first novel, L'elenco telefonico di Atlantide [The Phone Directory of Atlantis], in 2003. A fast and furiously-paced novel dealing with corruption in the world of banking, it was an immediate best-seller in Italy. Two further novels quickly followed, and in 2006 Avoledo won the prestigious Grinzane Cavour Award for Tre sono le cose misteriose [Three Mysterious Things]. Avoledo has now published ten novels (2003-2012), which blend fantasy, science fiction and social comment, and involve conspiracy, violence and romantic entanglements. Gillian Ania has published several articles on Tullio Avoledo, as well as other Italian writers including Leonardo Sciascia, Paola Capriolo, Dacia Maraini and Enrico Palandri. For Troubador, she has translated Nicoletta Vallorani's Cordelia (Cordelia's Colours, 2012), and a new edition of her translation of Paola Capriolo's Il doppio regno (The Dual Realm, 2013), with Doug Thompson, is accompanied by a revised essay on the author and her work.
