marieMarie Arana (a name most of DC-based book fans might be familiar with from the pages of The Washington Post where she is the book editor — and a successful Peruvian) will be releasing her new fiction book “Lima Nights” on December 30, 2008. You can get the book via Amazon.com, for example.

A good friend to one of my colleagues who is also a former Post reporter (and hopefully soon we finally get to schedule that lunch we’ve been shooting for since two years ago!), Marie’s books bring up Peru’s food, sceneries, lifestyle, customs, and many other things that if you are a Peruvian I am sure you will be pretty familiar with and easily relate to.

Check her book out — and hopefully sometime soon we finally get to connect maybe in-between one of her many months-long trips to Lima and get the download on her experience as a successful Peruvian living in the U.S.
