    About “Edoardo Albert

    • Edoardo Albert

      I am, on paper at least, a surprisingly exotic creature Italian, Sinhala and Tamil by background, and growing up in London among the polyglot children of immigrants it was only when I, finally, went to university that I actually got to know any English people However, it s worth bearing in mind that the work of mine that produced the most extreme reaction in a reader was, in fact, a lonely hearts ad The reader, a friend checking the ad for me, was reduced to a wheezing, helpless, tear stained mess of hicoughing flesh, so uncontrollable was his laughter This was not quite the reaction I had hoped for One day, I hope to produce something to match that reaction, but preferably without acquiring a wife, as I later found one by slightly conventional means.
