Launching Again Behold the Stars
It’s winter, 1553. A small Italian hill town is under siege…
In this narrative of uncommon endurance Alex Josephy inhabits place and people with lively precision. ...an intense immersion into a lockdown that challenges all the senses, one utterly different from the modern experience of lockdown during the Covid pandemic, yet also hauntingly resonant with it. Most vitally, the empathy evoked reaches us across almost five centuries, making us care in the present.

Alex Josephy lives in Rye, East Sussex, and sometimes in Italy. She has been a reader and writer of poetry all her life, and has an MA in Creative and Life Writing from Goldsmiths College, University of London.

Other work includes White Roads, Paekakariki Press, 2018, and Other Blackbirds, Cinnamon Press, 2016. Her poems have won the McLellan and Battered Moons prizes, and have appeared in magazines and anthologies in the UK, Italy and India.

Supported by three superb readers:
Patricia Driver worked for many years as a broadcast news journalist in Bahrain, then as a senior fundraiser at St John Ambulance and English Heritage. Since retirement, Pat has immersed herself in the Rye, East Sussex theatre scene as a director and actor.

Janet Stott is involved in local theatre productions in Rye. She has loved reading aloud from an early age, and encouraged her children to do the same but with less success!

Susannah Mayor is involved in theatrical productions in Rye and East Sussex, and works for the National Trust.
