Author, Journalist. She was born in Zurich, Switzerland. A close friend of Klaus and Erika Mann, she was a big traveler, experience that she reflected powerfully in her books. In 1934, she accompanied Klaus Mann to the first Congress of Writers, in Moscow. In 1936, Annemarie arrived in New York along with the photographer Barbara Hamilton-Wright, to document the great industrial regions of northeastern United States. Later she crossed Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. When she returned to Europe, after a time in a hospital due to her problems with drugs and her unhappy love with Hamilton-Wright, she met the writer Ella Maillart and began a trip for Afghanistan. Unable to return to Germany, due to her antifascist ideas, Annemarie settled in her hometown, where she died in a bicycle accident. Her works include "Tod in Persien," "Jenseits von New York," "Flucht nach oben," "Unsterbliches Blau" and "Freunde um Bernhard." Recently, she was the subject of the book "Lei Così Amata."  (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
