British writer Matthew Kneale has been based in Rome for the best part of 20 years. Born in London to a family of writers, he studied at Oxford and taught english in Japan before embarking on his own writing career, during which he’s published seven novels, including the Booker-shortlisted ‘English Passengers’, and three works of non-fiction. His latest book, ‘The Rome Plague Diaries: Lockdown Life in the Eternal City’, is an unflinching look at the Italian capital during its shutdown last year.
