Tristano Dies A Life Cover







Tristano Dies:  A Life by Antonio Tabucchi and translated from the Italian by Elizabeth Harris has just been shortlisted for the 2016 Italian Prose in Translation Award.

Erik Noonan of Carte Blanche wrote that “Tabucchi’s sensuous and allusive prose dismantles our globalized moment and clears a space for Freedom to reside, in peace if not at ease.
