Miriam Frank

Miriam Frank was born in Barcelona and grew up in France, Mexico and New Zealand, where she graduated in medicine. She returned to Europe, obtained her London Fellowship in anaesthesia, married a German artist and former assistant to Kokoschka and was offered the post of senior lecturer and consultant at the Royal London Hospital where she worked until her retirement. Concurrently with her medical work, she helped her husband establish a summer art school in Italy. She moved from scientific writing to more literary forms with her translation of works by Latin American and Spanish authors, and now dedicates her time to her own writing in her homes in London, Italy and Greece. She is the author of My Innocent Absence: Tales from a Nomadic Life,which has received high praise at home and abroad. Its  sequel, The Unfinished Portrait, is scheduled for publication in 2015.
