Donna Leon on Radio 4

Last night's Front Row programme on Radio 4 contained an interview with Donna Leon amongst other entertainments matters.

Listen to the whole programme here for the next 6 days (you get the end of The Archers as well).

(Donna Leon is an American author who lives in Venice and writes the Commissario Brunetti series set there. There is a website here.)

That was a very interesting interview, and I was surprised that Donna Leon did not want her books published in Italian. They are far less critical of Italy than Carlotto, Lucarelli or Camilleri. She considers herself a guest and does not want insult her hosts.

I knew she didn't want them published in Italy but didn't know why. btw Donna Leon's going to be at Waterstones Picadilly on the 17th at 7pm.
