Before Elena Ferrante there was Grazia Deledda. When Giovanna’s husband, Costantino, is convicted of a murder he claims he did not commit, she comes under pressure from her family to divorce him and marry a wealthy landowner who has always admired her. This she does, but the new marriage is an unhappy one and Giovanna remains firmly in love with Costantino. Following new evidence, Costantino is acquitted and returns to his home village, embarking on an affair with his former wife that seems destined to end in tragedy. In 1926, Grazia Deledda became the first Italian woman to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. She was born in Sardinia and the life, people and customs of that Mediterranean island pervade her work. Praise for Grazia Deledda ‘Before Elena Ferrante there was Grazia Deledda.’ Matt Reimann ‘Deledda belongs to more than just her own day. She does more than reproduce the temporary psychological condition of her period... what she does is to create the passionate complex of a primitive populace.’ DH Lawrence The Nobel Prize in Literature 1926 was awarded to Grazia Deledda ‘for her idealistically inspired writings which with plastic clarity picture the life on her native island and with depth and sympathy deal with human problems in general’.

“Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.” — from Invisible Cities In a garden sit the aged Kublai Khan and the young Marco Polo — Mongol emperor and Venetian traveler. Kublai Khan has sensed the end of his empire coming soon. Marco Polo diverts his host with stories of the cities he has seen in his travels around the empire: cities and memory, cities and desire, cities and designs, cities and the dead, cities and the sky, trading cities, hidden cities. As Marco Polo unspools his tales, the emperor detects these fantastic places are more than they appear. “Invisible Cities changed the way we read and what is possible in the balance between poetry and prose . . . The book I would choose as pillow and plate, alone on a desert island.” — Jeanette Winterson

Reading a story to another person creates a bond between two people. It is often assumed that reading aloud is only for children, but the practice was once a common pleasure for adults too. The time has come to rediscover it. This simple yet powerful action connects us with our friends, helps us centre ourselves in the present and lets us focus gently on what matters. To Read Aloud consists of 75 extracts of an average 1000 words each, from writers ranging from Cicero to Lewis Carroll to Robert Macfarlane (alongside less familiar names). It is arranged under ten thematic chapters: Love, Loss, Lightness, Pleasure, Work, Nature, Change, Chaos, Wonder, and Coda: Delicacies for Discussion. A literary toolbox for well-being, To Read Aloud invites you to to take just ten minutes off, sit down with somebody you care about and share a passage of writing.
