African Literature in Translation: Italian Edition

by - 15:20

 



I've been learning Italian. Very slowly. I'm still pretty bad. No, I'm not being modest. Actually, I was not being honest when I said I'm still pretty bad, because, I.am.appalling. But I will still keep at it. I'm learning cause I moved ... again. For work. This time to Italy.

This morning as I was scrolling through my social media feed, I noticed the Italian translation of Bernardine Evaristo's Girl, Woman, Other. This reminded me of the Italian translation of Sarah Ladipo Manyika's Like a Mule, which I saw some months back. As it is with my mind, it started going off in many directions, wondering about what other books in English by African writers have been translated into Italian. Maybe one day I'll even be able to read them in Italian, but for now, here are eleven books I found. As always this isn't an exhaustive list. PS. This doesn't include books written in Italian by Black Italian writers - that list soon come. PPS. I found quite a few by Black writers (including Toni Cade BambaraOctavia Butler, Toni Morrison, and Fran Ross)

    2. Hi everyone... Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr. Wale can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family is living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr. Wale If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him +1(978) 406-9575 or Email him at : everlastingspellcast@gmail.com or view his website for more review https://everlastingspellcaster.website2.me/contact
