Trying to imagine how that voice and downbeat storytelling style might work in English I wrote two short novels, , in rapid succession.
I say I was learning Italian, but in fact I was learning English too. Nothing makes you more aware of your own language, its structure and strategies, than the differences of a new one.
In a previous piece I mentioned that early on in Italy I wrote a novel in Italian.
This came immediately after and this too was influenced by Ginzburg.
I began to write non-fiction, about Italy, to draw this experience into my writing.
Where fiction was concerned, I looked for a different kind of storytelling that didn’t involve an intense contemporaneity, or was set outside the UK.
