Today, several italian brave libreries will show in their shelves the small volume Inchiostro di Puglia ( Ink of Puglia), a collection of very short novels set in 34 different places of this region, beautiful and complex as a stiletto heel.
This is a kind of literary guide made up with noir stories, love stories, comedies and tragedies, sun, crickets, olive trees, sea and heart storms, written by local authors.
Some of the short novels were selected among those written in the blog ‘Inchiostro di Puglia’, by Michele Galgano; then, some other tales – mine inclded – were written specifically for this fiction guide.
The book is written in Italian, and I think a travel (to the end of the land) and a book are the best reasons and motivations to learn this language.
These are the authors of the short local novels:
Sabrina Barbante (oui, mes amis, c’est moi!),
Nino G. D’Attis,
Omar Di Monopoli,
Lucia Tilde Ingrosso,
