Name: Giuseppe Terrano
Company: Bastei Lübbe

Question #1: Where and when do you read?
In bed and on the train during long commuting hours, unfortunately falling asleep too soon in both cases.

Question #2: Which book have you most given as a present?
Having to switch between Italian and German to find proper books for my family and friends on both sides of the Alps turns out to be a challenge more often than not. My heart still beats for Andrea Camilleri and his Il ladro di meredine/ Der Dieb der Süßen Dinge, that could be me craving for sugar during a stressful day at work too. Most recently I have given as a present The Silk Villa by Tabea Bach and Whitestone Hospital by Ava Reed. A good love story is the best medicine during difficult times.


Question #3: What do you remember about your first book fair?
My first book fair was in 2011 as a visitor. I remember popping by accidentally at the Bastei Lübbe´s stand. At that time, I knew the company only from its novel booklets. I could have never imagined neither that the company would grow so much and expand its list to a variety of genres over the years nor that I would become the rights director here on day. Sometimes it does happen in real life like in the best tradition of Bastei Lübbe´s books: “the destiny brings us to unknown places, where we unexpectedly find happiness …”

Question #4: Tell us the resolutions you have made for this year
Doing more sport, reading more books out of my professional scope, coming back to Bologna after so many years of absence

Question #5: Tell us about a bad habit, an obsession or a particular attitude you have picked up since starting to work at Bastei Lübbe
I really try to convince everyone of how wonderful the titles in our portfolio are and why they should buy a book in Bastei Lübbe´s list, by quoting the plots, the countries to which we sold the rights and how many copies we have sold. And this basically with everyone and on every occasion: family, friends, at the bakery, at the tank station …
