The Newspaper Man by David Belcher
Published by: Into Books
Publication: 6 May 2024
Tony Moscardini has exchanged life in a rain-lashed Scottish city packed with incident for the sun-baked predictability of a small medieval hilltop town in rural Italy.
He has given up onerous full-time employment in daily journalism and found fulfilment in photography and guerrilla film-making. More importantly, he has found what feels a lot like true love.
And yet, if he’s being honest with himself, life in Castel di Colonia has also begun to feel a little bit dull. So what will he find on his return to Glasgow for a weekend? Old foes? Long-forgotten disappointments? Fresh excitements? Overwhelming temptation?
Will the happier new Tony yield to his pessimistic former self?
