Silvia Ricci Lempen
Anna’s Dreams

A refined structure encompasses the stories of five women, which are interwoven as time runs backwards: from the future to the early 20th century, through various European places and sceneries. The protagonists’ points of view alternate and reconcile wishful thinking with realism. In combination with the reflections on the situation of women, these elements transform I Sogni di Anna by Silvia Ricci Lempen into an important and special novel, which brings to life a literature outside of stereotypes.
