The 12 books nominated to the Strega Prize 2021 have finally been revealed.
The Strega Prize is the most prestigious Italian literary award. Founded in 1947, it awards the best work of prose fiction written in the Italian language every year.
Among the candidated authors, we can find Donatella Di Pietrantonio and her new novel “Borgo sud“, that is the sequel of “L’Arminuta“, a story about motherhood, love and abandonment.
“L’Arminuta” was published in Sweden in 2019 by Polaris thanks to a C.M. Lerici Foundation’s grant.
Have you already read one (or more) of them in Italian? Which one would you like to read in Swedish?
