Folks! it’s time for the first author announcement for Manx Litfest 2019… that’s right, the Litfest juggernaut is off and rolling again.
We are thrilled that Tom Rachman will be joining us for this year’s festival. Tom’s latest novel – The Italian Teacher – was published in hardback last year and shortlisted for the Costa Award. It’s being published in paperback in the UK next month (March 7) by Riverrun, the literary fiction imprint of Quercus.
Born in London and raised in Vancouver, Tom is a graduate of the University of Toronto and the Columbia School of Journalism and has been a foreign correspondent for the Associated Press (stationed in Rome). Since 2006, he has worked as an editor at the International Herald Tribune in Paris.
Tom’s other books are The Imperfectionists, The Rise & Fall of Great Powers and Basket of Deplorables – you can find out more at http://www.tomrachman.com/
Stay tuned for more Litfest 2019 news coming soon!
