This week we publish the second in a series of five ‘easy reader’ ebooks which tell the story of three generations of an Italian family that emigrates to the USA.
If you missed Libro 1, you’ll find it here:
Colpa della terra, Libro 1, Colpa della terra, £7.99 | Free Sample Chapter (.pdf)
Libro 2 opens in the chaos of Naple’s port in 1895, moments before the sailing of a ship crammed with emigrants from some of Italy’s most desperate villages. This time the narrator is Giuliano, the family’s disabled eldest child.
Arrivati al porto di Napoli, veniamo inghiottiti dalla folla. Stringo forte la mano di mia madre, i miei due fratelli più piccoli sono aggrappati alla sua gonna. Mio padre sta dietro di me e mi spinge avanti, proteggendo la mia gamba fragile dai colpi che dà la gente.
