Interview with Marina Puntellini

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
First book I loved so much was Little women by M. L. Alcott. I spent many hours to imagine her life!
How do you approach cover design?
Cover design is my daughter Tony Mottola's job since my first book appears in 1996...
What are your five favorite books, and
Adriano's memories by Marguerite Yorcenar is a book for meditation on life death power and human ruinous. La montagna incantata by Thomas Mann looks for the same questions looking for God too. L'idiota by F Dostoevskij, is a good man's portrait who looks for human pity but can't find it. Finally A
la recherche du temps perdu by M Proust a charmante rêverie of our memories and last but not least Q89 by Murakami for its fantasy and desperation.
What do you read for pleasure?
Thrillers
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Amazon Kindle
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Few critics and few friend's advices
Describe your desk
An old poker table herited from my favourite uncle, a library and a printer on my left, a new PC and too many papers all around
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grow up in Milan, my town's in my heart and influence all books I wrote and shall write more

Alla ricerca del tempo perduto: in questo libro infinito, a mille livelli di seduzione (come la coscienza, come la memoria, come l’amore), riletto con stupore sempre rinnovato, mi chiedo se sia lecito cercare una tenera sfumatura di intimità: i cibi magici dell’infanzia e della giovinezza. Chiedo scusa a Marcel Proust se questo racconto può apparire banale .Io credo, tuttavia, che ne sorriderebbe.
