SCRAPS NEWS

Thanks to It's a Crime (or a mystery...) for this news about :

Siamo Roma which has an interview with Massimo Mongai on one of its pages, within the culture section.
Mongai is yet to be published in English, but I'm told he's well-known in Italy and that he won the Urania Award in 1997. The interview is mostly about his new crime novel, and the appeal of writing crime fiction set in Rome.

Thanks for the mention alongside the illustrious Eurocrime and Detectives beyond Borders. I hope the links are working as yesterday blogger seemed to go into maintenance mode everytime I logged in.
Italy still has most countries beaten as a location for crime fiction, movies, holidays, and food.

Norm, here I can offer a possible defense for Blogger: At least time, it gave advance notice of the maintenance. I got a little notice about it whenever I signed in. If my calculations are correct, the work would have been taking place around 8 a.m. your time. The links are working fine.

Peter, my time clock on blogger is completely out of sync with GMT. I will try and reset it.
We were at the emergency department of our local hospital till 03.30am the other day. A friend had a minor stroke. The ambulance service called us out as they were so disturbed they would not open the door to the paramedics.
I think I did not notice the maintenance warning as I was so tired.

Yikes! I'd say you had more important things on your mind than blog troubles. I hope all turned out well.

Yes thanks, she seems to have made a good recovery.
This year friends and relatives have been falling by the wayside, and I know it is to be expected as one gets older. But some of the invalids have been 10 years younger than me, and 43 years younger than my mother-in-law, aged 95 and still fighting fit.
