After the appearance of her novel, Meeting Laura, and during the writing of the sequel, Anna "Annina" Lorenzi surprises us, again, with a ‘lateral’ project completely different from her previous publications. It’s an outside of the box collection, without rules. A collection of words and images, of emotions, of Life that someone has even called "poetry"...
"Within these pages, you’ll find everything and it’s exact opposite. You’ll find me. Better yet, though, you’ll find what you yourselves want to find. Take these ‘snapshots’ as if they were pictures hung on empty walls in an art exhibit (if we can talk of ‘art’). Observe them, read them, immerse yourselves in them without thinking. Empty your minds, use your hearts… Make them your own, without hesitation. – A19.
Born in Milan on a rainy Monday morning the 26th of October, 1981. She went to - or, better yet, “went to” - two years of classical studies high school, followed by four years of artistic studies high school, without, in any event, being able to resist dedicating herself to her passions: writing, music, photography, her beloved dogs, engines, travelling and nature. Talking about work, she really does “a little bit of everything,” so much so that, together with some friends, she founded a company in Texas that deals with classic cars. Participating in writing contests and working with some Italian magazines, she has published various short stories and articles. Currently, she shares her creative writing accompanied by photographs and images on her personal site, Diciannove - Prima di nascere ero sull'astronave che aspettavo di scendere (annina19.com - Nineteen - Before I was born I was on a space ship waiting to come down). She also promotes her other literary publications, internationally.
Starleen K. Meyer has been translating from Italian into English for years: academic works in the broad humanities field, such as on architectural or music history, but also literary works. She has her B.A. in art, her M.A. and Ph.D. in art history, and has also published contributions in scholarly books and journals.
