Pier Giorgio in his own words

It has been a long time in coming, but we are getting very close to being able to read Pier Giorgio's letters in English. Pier Giorgio was a true correspondent. His father was the founder of a newspaper so maybe it was a hereditary trait. In any case, he made it a point to write to his family and friends on a regular basis. I imagine if he were alive today, he would have been big on emailing and text messaging. After his death, a lot of the postcards and letters he had written were collected and eventually compiled into a book in Italian. They have since been published in other languages but never in English. Until now! The publisher estimates the book will be available by this fall. Finally, we will be able to get a glimpse of Pier Giorgio from a different perspective. Long overdue but worth the wait!
