Anne Louise Brings began perusing the shelves of The King’s English as a child, coached by a mother with impeccable literary taste. Anne Louise graduated from Westminster College with a B.F.A. in Theatre Performance and a desperate need to own and read as many books as possible-a decision she regrets with each move. She resides in Sugarhouse with a partner who puts up with her exquisitely messy book corner and her inability to pass a bookshop without going in. Favorite authors include: Isabel Allende, Terry Tempest Williams, Carson McCullers, Rebecca Solnit, Jeffrey Eugenides, Italo Calvino, T.S. Eliot, Hermann Hesse, and Sylvia Plath.
