I want to be a publisher

Cover of “Modern Slaves”

I want to be a publisher. I’m branching out. The new series is to be called beppegrillo.it and it will have content taken from my shows, from the blog and from people that I hold in high esteem. The themes will be the economy, the environment, the Internet, energy, work and our future.
In the next few months I will publish two books. The first is “Modern Slaves – the precarious worker in Fairy Land” with writings from myself, as well as Stiglitz and professor Gallegati commenting on the evidence put forward by the Italians working precariously who have written to me.
It’ll be possible to download “Modern Slaves” from the blog or to buy online in the paper format. After that there’ll be a book based on the blog called “All Beppe Grillo’s Battles”. That’ll be available by the end of April.
In the collection I’ll also propose the translation of books that are not published in Italy, officially for reasons of the audience. It’s a new adventure. Wish me “break a leg”.

Dear Beppe,
I am an English translator and I translated L.Littizzetto's "sola come un gambo di cedano" for my MA. I have been in touch with her but as yet have not forwarded my manuscript.I am currently working freelance whilst I await approval of my PhD proposal. I would very much appreciate the chance to be considered as a translator working for you. My boyfriend is a Sard and an avid signed-up fan of your blog. We attended and assisted at the V day in Dublin with some of your Italian friends living here in Ireland and I think you are a patriot in the truest possible sense of the word. I look forward to hearing your thoughts, Many thanks for your time,

YES,great idea about tv web,that would be the only one I am willing to subscribe to,CAME ON! GO BEPPE,GO BEPPE!

That is a great little idea Seb!. An alternative web tv sounds really great. As you say we could enjoy once more the fantastic talent of the Guzzanti brothers. A bit of Luttazzi and Travaglio wouldn't hurt either. I wish there was a little space dedicated to the concept of MONEY and DEBT as they are the real bastions of this decadent society.
Hey Seb when you've got time go to google video and look for 'the money masters' video. I am sure You will find it interesting enough to realize that we need more programs about 'real' information than satire shows.
Let me know what you think about it Ok?

I'd suggest that you start an internet tv station as an alternative to the state-vetted rubbish that's excreted out of Rai. Have a look at 18doughtystreet.com as an example of this nascient paradigm. You may consider including not only your own shows on a pay-per-view basis but also your daily take of the real news or inviting all the other censored voices like Sabina Guzzanti to webcast their shows too.

Dear Giuliana you may have more success with obtaining translation work if you use a spellcheck before you post your comments. Use Word to spellcheck and then paste into a txt editor and back into the blog!
Great that you volunteer though and a pity about losing Gomorra.

This sounds very interesting tome, I just lost the chance to translate Gomorra by Saviano, with the american publisher. If you need any help I live in New York my main job is beeing a mother , bur recently also beacuse of You Mr Grillo I started moving a little bit more , having more fun and so if you need an help to translate books of that kind I will be very happy to help, it is my Duty, and of course not a matter of money.
