It’s a public holiday Monday here in Italy, meaning the schools/universities are closed and I have a housefull of bored toddler, plus slumbering adult kids to boot, and no ideas for lunch or dinner.
A short one, then!
Thanks to everyone who bought our newest ebook while it was on offer last week. Colpa della terra, Libro 3, Senza dire niente is the fourth in a series of five, and the plan is to prep no. 4 while things are quite during nanna time after lunch, for publication next Monday.
Nel frattempo a half-price Ebook of the Week for you to read/listen to. And this time, I’ve chosen something that is both lower-level, unlike the ‘series’, and rather romantic. Enough with the miseries of migration for a while!
Il campo di papaveri (A2/B1) is a tale of young love, and one that we published many years back when we were first starting out. If you’re fussy about audio quality and the like (a small proportion of people seem obsessed with it), bear that in mind, so go check out the link to the free online audio in the, also free, sample chapter (.pdf) download.
N.b. the cover image shows a much younger version of myself. Also, the author of this one is my wife, currently wrangling the baby out of earshot but a.k.a. the editor of EasyItalianNews.com as well as the public face of our Italian language school.
Personally, I thought she did a fantastic job with this story, so both interesting and appropriate to the level. I’d hoped she would write more, but once was enough, apparently.
Anyway, here’s the blurb from our ebook shop:
A young artist, who can’t pay his rent, offers to paint his landlord’s flat instead. But guess who the landlord’s daughter turns out to be?
