By Carol Farrelly.

A lyrical story about a young woman who makes her annual visit to her therapist and reflects on a summer of love affairs in Venice.

Carol Farrelly is from Glasgow and lives and works in Edinburgh. She is currently writing her first novel, This Starling Flock, set in neutral Ireland during the Second World War. The opening to this novel won her the Sceptre Prize. In 2010, the Scottish Book Trust chose her to be one of their New Writers. Her short stories have been published in journals such as Stand, New Writing Scotland and Dream Catcher and have been shortlisted for the Bridport and Asham Prizes. She has a DPhil on the novels of Thomas Hardy and, while an undergraduate, spent one year waking up in beautiful Bologna. One day, she hopes to weave both Italy and Hardy into novels too.

Reader: Victoria Liddelle

Producer: Kirsty Williams.
