Massimo Carlotto's La signora del martedì hits the Italian bestseller charts on publication

La signora del martedì, Massimo Carlotto’s darkly funny and heart-warming latest novel, went straight in the bestseller charts upon publication in Italy. Published by E/O at the end of Janaury, the book is at number 2 in the Italian fiction chart and number 4 in the general fiction chart on La Repubblica and La Stampa’s TuttoLibri.

Carlotto is one of the masters of Italian noir, but with this book he transcends the boundaries of genre to portray three unforgettable flawed characters and their struggle for acceptance and love. The publication was met by rave reviews, with Il Venerdì di Repubblica calling it “one of Carlotto’s best novels.” Translation rights for La signora del martedì are sold for German and Catalan.
