About the Author

Iris Origo (1902-1988) was a British-born biographer and writer. She lived in Italy and devoted much of her life to the improvement of the Tuscan estate at La Foce, which she purchased with her husband in the 1920s. During WWII, she sheltered refugee children and assisted many escaped Allied prisoners of war and partisans in defiance of Italy's fascist regime and Nazi occupation forces. Pushkin Press also publishes her war diaries War in Val D'Orcia, as well as two of her biographies Leopardi: A Study in Solitude; The Last Attachment: The Story of Byron and Teresa Guccioli.
