Alan M.A. Friedmann is a nom de plume, the creation of an unlikely couple: he an academic at an ancient British University, she the Oriental Artworks specialist at a renowned auction house.
Both wish to remain anonymous.
They value privacy above exposure. As Alan Friedmann cannot do book signings or give interviews, they rely solely on the quality and uniqueness of the writing. Produced by a small independent Scottish publisher, the success of The Sorrowful Woman depends on word-of-mouth recommendations.
