Marie-Jeanne Acquaviva

Marie-Jeanne Acquaviva was born in Paris and studied French literature at La Sorbonne Paris. Her PhD centred on literary hoaxes from the 17th century: women authors passing for men, fictions passing for real letters. She worked in French publishing as an editor for over ten years, shared a food and auto-fiction blog with a Russian and an Italian partner, focused on how cooking habits and recipes are linked to our personal history. Later she became a translator, and has written portraits and conducted interviews for various French and English publications in Dubai.
