About the Author

Francesca Giacco is a graduate of Barnard College and the MFA program at Columbia University. She lives in New York. Six Days in Rome is her first novel.


"Francesca Giacco is a stunning writer and Six Days in Rome is a brilliant transporting experience--a novel about belonging with heart and heat; a gorgeous and literary holiday."--Lisa Taddeo, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Three Women and Animal
"Sometimes it takes a three-thousand-year-old city to feel brand new. Six Days in Rome unfolds with all the crisp wonderment of a two-star hotel map. Sensorial as hell, it acknowledges the major landmarks and thoroughfares, but knows you have to get lost in the invisible, the unrendered to find what you didn't know you were looking for. An ode to funky wine labels, good taste, and true inspiration, Francesca Giacco has penned a stunningly cool and stylish debut."--Paul Beatty, Man Booker Prize winning author of The Sellout
"If Sally Rooney and Frances Mayes co-wrote a novel in an Airbnb near the Spanish Steps, it might read something like Six Days in Rome. Smart, keenly observed, and deeply felt, this is a book for anyone who's ever journeyed abroad to find themselves."--David Ebershoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Danish Girl and The 19th Wife
"Giacco's debut is an intimate, entertaining, clear-eyed evocation of a disillusioned young female artist's coming of age amongst the ruins of Rome and like her heart-broken narrator, very good company."--Elissa Schappell, Author of Blueprints for Building Better Girls
"Six Days in Rome is a masterful debut--a literary travelogue that maps both the internal and external, capturing the intimate fireworks of heartbreak and the endless question of identity, alongside the sumptuous backdrop of Rome. Francesca Giacco has written a novel as artful as it is affecting."--Adrienne Brodeur, Author of Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover and Me
