Join Italian author Giacomo Sartori at Green Apple Books to hear him discuss his new novel. I Am God is a sly and strange first-person account of the Almighty’s existential crisis, which the New York Review of Books calls “almost outrageously charming… a delicious, comical stream of omniconsciousness.”

The novelist, poet and dramatist Giacomo Sartori was born in 1958 in Trento in the Alpine northeast of Italy near the Austrian border. An agronomist, he is a soil specialist whose unusual day job (unusual for a writer) has shaped a distinctive concrete and poetic literary style. He has worked abroad with international development agencies in a number of countries, and has taught at the Università di Trento. He was over 30 when he began writing, and has since published seven novels and four collections of stories as well as poetry and texts for the stage. He’s an editor of the literary collective Nazione Indiana and contributes to the blog www.nazioneindiana.com.
