-  The daughter of a Peruvian father and an American mother, Marie Arana was born in Lima, Peru, and when she was 9, she moved to New Jersey. Arana is a former editor of The Washington Post's Book World and is now a writer-at-large for that newspaper. Her work is bicultural, reflecting her life as both a U.S. and Peruvian citizen. Arana's memoir, "American Chica: Two Worlds, One Childhood," was a finalist for the National Book Award in 2001. Her novels "Cellophane" and "Lima Nights" were published to critical acclaim. Arana has recently turned to biography with "Bolivar: American Liberator," which The Washington Post described as "magisterial in scope, written with flair and an almost cinematic sense of history happening."
