Brexit Blues: Marco Varvello in conversation with Joseph Farrell



Brexit Blues: Marco Varvello in conversation with Joseph Farrell

This event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Brexit Blues, by Marco Varvello, published in Italian by Mondadori, is a collection of short stories about Great Britain at the time of Brexit, but also Europe and Italy at the time of the "Third Republic": a former Minister who organises terror attacks, a fight between next door neighbours, a Chinese nuclear power plant on the outskirts of London, the NHS services administered as gifts to a Romanian village. The result is a surreal, grotesque and ironical tale, encompassing the complexity and ramifications of a major event, which affects us all.

Come and join us for this engaging evening!

Marco Varvello is the UK correspondent for RAI - Italian State Television. He worked for "La Notte" and "Il Giornale" under Indro Montanelli. With RAI since 1987, he anchored the TV News for TG1, edited "Il Fatto" by Enzo Biagi and was previously the RAI correspondent in Berlin and the US. He won the "London Foreign Press Award 2018" for best programme in a foreign language about the UK on the subject of domestic violence. Apart from Brexit Blues, he has written another work of fiction Dimentica le Mille e una Notte, published by Rizzoli.

Joseph Farrell is Emeritus Professor at Strathclyde University. He has written on both Scottish and Italian theatre, was reviewer for The Scotsman and now contributes a theatre column for the Scottish Review of Books. He co-edited the Cambridge History of Italian Theatre.
