The Narrow Road to the Deep

Born in Milan, Italy in 1938, Renata Adler grew up in Danbury, Connecticut. In 1962, she accepted a job as a New Yorker staff writer and from 1968-1969 served as the chief film-critic for The New York Times. Her first novel Speedboat (1976) recieved a PEN/Hemingway award and her short story, "The Brownstone" received the 1974 O. Henry Award. Many of Adler's articles have been collected in the annual Best American Magazine Writing.

Two Lines Press is a publisher of translated fiction and nonfiction, offering American readers the opportunity to read some great work from abroad. Two Lines Press endeavors to give readers another point of entry to an international discussion and to see that great literature isn’t created by the background of the culture in which its produced but by the talent of the writer that produces it (and the translator that brings it to English).
