Abstract

Writing Canadian Narratives with Italian Accents: The Pink House And Other Stories (2018)

The essay discusses the importance of (shifts in) setting and language in short stories set in Montreal featuring Canadian characters who are of Italian heritage. I will discuss the writing process (and self-translation choices) in my collections The Pink House and Other Stories (2018) and Almond Wine and Fertility (2008; second edition 2018).

Scrivere storie canadesi con un accento italiano: The Pink House and Other Stories (2018)
