Angela Paolantonio is the author of The Ghosts of Italy (2016). In STILL LIFE WITH SAINTS (2020), she trades Mulholland Drive for via Fontana to live in the house where her Italian spirit was born, on a magical lane among the women of the village who take her under their wing and into their lives. Once a twenty-year resident of Los Angeles life and culture, she has been an artist agent, and photo editor / director for national and international advertising and editorial companies, and works in Italy as an executive producer, curator, and consultant for art and photography exhibits, books, and events in both Italy and the U.S.
“The mingling of a journey to find ancestral roots with a rustic love story, plenty of local color, and excellent descriptions of Italian cuisine, result in an intriguing and passionate memoir.” The Ghosts of Italy, PublishersWeekly BookLifePrize 2020
The Ghosts of Italy is a Library Journal curated selection for the Indie Author Project (IAP) Commercial Collections Memoirs Program for Queens Public Library and Garden City Public Library, New York.
