Set in Italy in 1938, Sarah Day’s debut novel Mussolini’s Island tells the true story of a group of gay men who were imprisoned as political ‘deviants’ on the island of San Domino.  In the close confines of the island the men soon realise that one of their number must have betrayed them to the authorities. Seductive, moving and full of insight into the desperate acts committed by individuals when fighting for their lives, Mussolini’s Island is a novel of sexuality and desire, and the secrets we keep locked within us.
