Hilary Prendini-Toffoli – An Italian Feast of Love, Language and Linguine

One for Itali-o-philes this. Veteran journalist Hilary Prendini-Toffoli shares her joint obsessions for Italy, her husband Emilio, travel, good food and an even better story. In her first novel ‘Loves and Miracles of Pistola’ she has packed in not just a massive amount of food and intrigue but a lifetime of experience and the sheer joy of writing. Warning: don’t read hungry.

Hilary’s latest book is called Loves & Miracles of Pistola.

Book Stories People is a podcast for people with an appetite for the story behind the story. Whether a book, a play, a movie, poem, song, a blog – or even a tweet, there’s always a back story – more to it than meets the eye. Or the ear. And that’s often where the gold lies. So that’s what I hope to bring you on BSP, the less well-trumpeted tales, the inside intel – from wordsmiths of all disciplines – known, unknown celebrity or completely unheard of. And who am I? You might well ask. Just an independent journalist from the tip of Africa with an appetite for stories that matches your own. Nancy Richards, yours in stories.
