Weekend Word Wrap: Stefano Bertolussi

David K. Israel

It's been a while since I posted a Word Wrap. We've had so many talented guest wordies on the blog, I thought I wouldn't crowd their space.

But it feels good to bring it back, especially with the below interview I recently did with author and translator, Stefano Bertoussi. Stefano lives in Milan and, as you'll hear in the interview, has made a name for himself translating big American writers into Italian. Among others, Stefano has translated James Ellroy, Madison Smartt Bell, Cathleen Schine, John Connolly, Elliot Perlman, Carl Hiaasen, James Lee Burke, Nicholas Evans, and yours truly.

I caught up with Stefano while he was in Los Angeles recently attending Book Expo America.
