Italian Journeys: Sneeze-Interview and Lecture

  1. A short interview with me in Italian is up at Vivarte; here's the crazy robot English version.

    It's actually a "sneeze-interview", I don't know why the robot thinks it's an interview-partridge. How is a sneeze like a partridge? (They both explode out of the bushes?)

    Yes, I actually did the interview in my version of actual Italian.

  2. It looks like I will be doing a reading and lecture at the University of Florence on November 6th. Time (probably early afternoon?) and location not set, but you know, just in case you want to design your fall Eurail tour around that date.

    (Side note: why am I linking to the U of F in the paragraph above? What are you going to do, register for classes based on this blog entry? Ultimately there's something weird about the whole idea of blogs, isn't there? Or am I just having a moment of universal alienation?)

Be', lui l'ha corretto un po'. It mio contribuzione originale aveva probabilmente dei piccoli problemi grammaticali... :-)

E non posso dire di non aver usato talvolta il robot pazzesco di Google Translate durante il composizione!

Ma grazie tuttavia!
