About the Author

Melania G. Mazzucco was born in Rome in 1966, and studied Italian literature and cinema. She has written award-winning novels and works for the cinema, theatre and radio, and is a contributor to The New York Times, El PaΓ­s and la Repubblica, among many others. Her novel Vita (published in English by Picador in 2006) won Mazzucco the 2003 Strega Prize, Italy's leading literary award.

Translated from the Italian by Virginia Jewiss

Emanuela Orciari was born in Pesaro. She has won awards with big names, like 'Super Libro 2005' and 'Scarpetta d'Oro'. Yet she says that, in King Lear, she has found pretty much the complete story, and a story for everyone.
