Antonella Moretti is the Author of Parsley and Coriander, a fictional book about an Italian expat community in Suzhou, China. Antonella has lived in Suzhou for many years herself and draws upon her personal expat experience for this narrative. In this episode we asked Antonella about her two bookish hats: expat reader AND expat Writer. We discuss her love of reading books about China, what led her to write this book on an expat experience in China and about the publication and translation process. The book was initially written in Italian but now has an English version and will soon have a Mandarin Chinese version as well. Special thanks go out to Tatjana , a bookish Germany expat living in India and to Russian expat living in Shanghai, Marina Kushch, ShanghaiDailyChic on Instagram, for contributing questions to this interview.
