Antonio Tabucchi was born in Pisa in 1943 and died in Lisbon, his adopted home, in 2012. Over the course of his career he won France's Medicis Prize for Indian Nocturne, the Italian PEN Prize for Requiem, and the Aristeion Prize for Pereira Maintains. A staunch critic of the former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, he once said that "democracy isn't a state of perfection, it has to be improved, and that means constant vigilance.
Born in England, Tim Parks moved to Italy in 1981 and has lived there ever since. His acclaimed books about Italy include Italian Ways, A Season with Verona, Italian Neighbors, and An Italian Education. He has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize, and has won the Somerset Maugham Award, the Betty Trask Prize, the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize, the John Florio Prize, and the Calvino Prize. He is a regular contributor to the New York Review of Books. He lives in Italy.
