Fiji includes more than 300 islands, only about a third of which are permanently inhabited. The rocky, volcanic islands of the north are especially deserted, compared to the sunnier, coral-circled Yasawa Islands to the west. These northern islands are where Italian novelist Umberto Eco went into seclusion to write his novel
The Island of the Day Before, and are home to writers and playwrights such as Joseph Veramu, Jo Nacola, and Marjorie Crocombe.
