Dacia Maraini is today’s most prominent Italian writer. She won, among others, the most prestigious Italian literature awards, which are Campiello and Strega. Her books are translated into twenty-two languages and some of her bestsellers such as Storia di Piera [Piera’s Story], L’età del malessere [The Age of Malaise], La lunga vita di Marianna Ucrìa [The Silent Duchess], Voci [Voices], and Memorie di una ladra [Memories of a Thief] – were turned into successful movies. Writing like Breathing is an homage to Dacia Maraini, celebrating a writing career that has spanned over half a century, covering all forms of literature. It is a unique collection comprising some of her most important works, the majority of which have never been translated into English.
