Jolanda and Me

It is always a pleasure receiving your author copy of a book you contributed to. When the book was edited by the likes of Franco Pezzini and Fabrizio Foni, it is an extra pleasure because you know it’s a high-quality volume.
So here I am, in my very messy library…

… with my copy of Jolanda & Co – le Donne Pericolose, a far-ranging survey of dangerous women in popular fiction.
I contributed a piece about a classic trope, the Queen of the Lost City in fiction from Haggard to the 1930s – and took the opportunity to once again show my affection for the Egyptian Amenartas.

And now the book’s here, and it’s a beauty, and I am very proud of being part of this beautiful project.
