Doug Thompson gave up a career in university teaching, research and writing to become a novelist and occasional painter. He is currently editor of Troubador’s Storia imprint of modern and contemporary Italian novels in translation, and is shortly also to publish his translation of Enrico Palandri’s L’altra sera, 2003 (The other evening) in that series. He has travelled widely and continues to do so, particularly in Italy, Greece and Australia, and has lived at various times in Italy, Singapore and Ireland. He is currently revising a long novel set in Queensland in 1850, and is near to finishing the first draft of another, An Antique Drum, set in Italy during the Second World War.
