Fly Italian

INKROCI cover-ENG-8LThis morning I found a lovely thing in my Inbox:  the most recent issue of Inkroci, which includes my short story “Flight” in both Italian and English, translated by Anna Anzani (thanks, Anna!)  I can’t put words on how it feels to look at your own words wearing new clothes, looking proud and fine and perfectly at ease with their new circumstances. They certainly don’t need you any more.  

Inkroci is at:

(Italian version)

Inkroci is a bilingual (Italian/English) online journal that promotes culture and cinema.  This issue also features work by the group of Irish writers who participated in this year’s Italo-Irish Literature Exchange: Mia Gallagher, Sean Hardie, Afric McGlinchy, Liz McManus, Noel Monahan, Nuala Ní Chonchúir, and William Wall

The editorial, written by Heiko Caimi, provocatively suggests that writers who appear on TV consent to the reduction of books to merchandise  ‘a product to sell to an audience on non-readers’. TV, says Caimi is ‘the medium that supports the most extreme and systematic destruction of language.’ 

There’s your thought for the day.

About No Small Talk

We are a group of writers who have come together out of concern for the level of division and increasing hostility that has crept into the rhetoric around Brexit. We want to generate links between writers and artists in both Ireland and Britain to challenge this debasing of language and the perversions of truth which are now regular features of public discourse. Our aim is to restore positive links and connections between us all.
