 Adriana Trigiani Biography

Called "one of the reigning queens of women's fiction" by USA Today, Adriana Trigiani is beloved by millions of readers around the world for her hilarious and heartwarming novels. Adriana was raised in a small coal-mining town in southwest Virginia in a big Italian family. She chose her hometown for the setting and title of her debut novel, the critically acclaimed bestseller Big Stone Gap.

The heartwarming story continues in the novel's sequels Big Cherry Holler, Milk Glass Moon, and Home to Big Stone Gap. Stand-alone novels Lucia, Lucia, The Queen of the Big Time, Rococo, all topped the bestseller lists, as did Trigiani's 2009 Very Valentine and its 2010 sequel Brava, Valentine.

Trigiani teamed up with her family for Cooking With My Sisters – a cookbook co-authored by her sister Mary, with contributions from their sisters and mother. The cookbook-memoir features recipes and stories dating back hundred years from both sides of their Italian-American family.

Adriana's novels have been translated and sold in over 35 countries around the world. Trigiani's Brava, Valentine, the sequel to her bestseller Very Valentine, debuted at number seven on The New York Times bestseller list when it debuted in February 2010. Her latest book is Don't Sing At the Table: Life Lessons From My Grandmothers.

Fans everywhere will soon see Adriana's work on the big and small screens. She wrote the screenplay for and will direct the big screen version of her novel Big Stone Gap, and she has also written the film adaptation of Lucia, Lucia and Very Valentine - which became a Lifetime Original Movie.

Critics from the Washington Post to The New York Times to People have described Adriana's novels as "tiramisu for the soul", "sophisticated and wise", and "dazzling." They agree, "her characters are so lively they bounce off the page", and that "... her novels are full bodied and elegantly written."

Among her many television credits, Adriana was a writer/producer on The Cosby Show, A Different World, and executive producer/head writer for City Kids for Jim Henson Productions. Her Lifetime television special, Growing up Funny, garnered an Emmy nomination for Lily Tomlin. She also wrote and directed the documentary film Queens of the Big Time, which won the Audience Award at the Hamptons Film Festival and toured the international film festival circuit from Hong Kong to London.

One popular book critic perhaps said it best: "Trigiani defies categorization. She is more than a one-hit wonder, more than a Southern writer, more than a woman's novelist. She is an amazing young talent."
