This book explores the work of a writer, Annie Chartres Vivanti (1866-1942), who brought a transnational dimension to the marked provincialism of the Italian novel by addressing issues of gender, ethnicity, and sexuality on personal and international levels, and by creating work that distanced itself from much of the female-penned literature of the day, scorning both decorum and social respectability. Chapters in this book examine Vivanti's output from multiple perspectives, taking into account her politics and her career as a journalist, writer, and singer, as well as her literary work.
