A TIME OF WAR
Selected for the LDC 2020 awards.
Its Italian version ‘Patria’ is published by Beccogiallo (Fandango) in Jan 2021.
‘A Time of War’ explores the indoctrination of young women in Fascist Italy.
It’s a coming of age story for an audience of young adults. It focuses on Graziella, a young Italian girl who’s forced to grow up quickly in a climate of ideologic rigour and war-induced poverty.
The long form book mixes pastel drawings and watercolours with ephemera from Fascist times, including old letters, photographs, notebooks, school books and report cards.
The book is available in English and Italian.
