Caroline is organizing the Antonio Tabucchi Week coming September 17 – 23 2012. Tabucchi was an Italian writer and academic who died this year.
Though his books have won international renown I have yet to read him. As a writer who seems to have plugged into world history and culture he appears to be a novelist right up my ally. I am very exited at the prospect of venturing into Tabucchi’s works for the first time. It will also be fun reading what many other bloggers have to say about this writer during the week.
I have chosen It's Getting Later All the Time as the book that I will read and blog about. I have already obtained my copy. As it looks fairly short I am thinking about sneaking another Tabucchi book and commentary in for that week. We shall see.
For anyone else interested in joining, more information is available over at Caroline’s blog. She includes a comprehensive list of Tabucchi’s works. Her catalogue should be of help for anyone who needs to decide which work to read.
