Il manuale dell’immigrazione

So proud that ‘The Immigration Handbook’ has been translated into Italian.

Thank you Prof Paola Splendore for translating my poetry with such care and expertise. Thank you for all the hours you have spent ensuring you have captured the spirit of my poems. I have found the time we have spent deliberating over words fascinating and wonderful.

Thank you also to edizioni dell’asino for publishing the book and for Seren Books for giving permission.

I would also like to thank Derek Duncan, Professor of Italian, School of Modern Languages, University of St Andrews who initiated this project through The Press Play Conference at the British School of Rome in February 2019.

    Wonderful translations – sensitive and intelligent – of these moving and memorable poems. Great to have the parallel text, too. A lovely edition.
    Tanto di cappello!
