The Hope Fault was published in Italy in late 2018 by Unorosso, an imprint of Parallelo45 Edizioni. The Italian translation, by Daniela Di Falco, takes the title Dopo la pioggia – ‘after the rain’.
The novel had its first public airing when the Parallelo45 Edizioni team took Dopo la pioggia to Bookcity Milano in 2018, and hit its promotional stride in early 2019. If I can rely on Google Translate, media coverage has been really positive.
Huge thanks go to Irina Turcanu, handling PR for the book, who has been an absolute champion. As well as fronting a number of radio interviews (because I have no Italian!), Irina had the unenviable task of translating (written) interview questions from Italian to English for me, and translating my (written) responses from English to Italian.
Dopo la pioggia (ISBN 978-8899246099) is available online from you-know-where, or in good bookstores in Italy.
Here are links to just some of the many reviews and interviews for the novel in the Italian media.
