The Literary Island

Wherever your island meanders take you, you’ll see people reading – books, newspapers and magazines. In the mornings. At the island outdoor cafes, espresso is sipped while turning the pages of a novel or perusing the morning paper. You might see an elderly woman, intent on reading her newspaper, empty gelato cup nearby. Sitting in a plastic armchair under a forest-green shuttered window, a white-haired islander does his crossword puzzles every afternoon.
