Megan K. Williams is an award-winning writer and journalist based in Rome. Her documentaries and essays on Italian culture, politics, economy and everyday life air regularly on CBC, American Public Media's Marketplace, NPR's On the Media, BBC-PRI's The World, World Vision and Deutsche Welle radios. She also covers Africa and the Balkans. Her articles have appeared in many newspapers and magazines including The Globe and Mail, Star-Ledger, South China Morning Post, Salon.com, Nature and enRoute. She has written numerous short stories and screenplays, and now lives in Rome, returning often to Toronto where she grew up.
“Williams’ journalistic roots come showing through in her ability to shape a scene, layering elements to create a snapshot out of every paragraph, the focus sharp and the colours bright. Saving Rome is like a postcard from a friend with ‘Wish you were here’ scrawled on the back. Save the airfare and read this book instead.”
