Gianrico Carofiglio: Three O'clock in the Morning (2021) | OCT 21

Gianrico Carofiglio presents the English edition of his novel “Le tre del mattino” (Einaudi 2017), during an online tour in collaboration with the IIC Los Angeles on the occasion of the 2021 Italian Language Week in the World.

Antonio is on the brink of adulthood, still figuring out who he is and who he wants to be. His father, once a brilliant mathematician, hasn’t figured much in his son’s life since his divorce from Antonio’s mother. But then a diagnosis of epilepsy and hope for a cure take father and son to Marseilles, a city that melds French old-world charm and modern-day bohemia.

The online event is organized by the Consulate General of Italy in Houston in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles; moderated by  Prof. Alessandro Carrera (University of Houston).
