Ari­ana Neu­mann’s mem­oir, When Time Stopped,  When her father Hans dies he leaves her a box of papers which become her roadmap to the his­to­ry of her father, to all the fam­i­ly he would nev­er speak of, and to the past he would nev­er let enter his present. Before long, Neu­mann is forced to become the detec­tive she’d played as a child if she wants to unrav­el the enig­ma of her father.

Ari­ana Neu­mann grew up in Venezuela. She grad­u­at­ed from Tufts Uni­ver­si­ty with a degree in his­to­ry and received her mas­ter’s in Span­ish and Latin Amer­i­can Lit­er­a­ture from New York Uni­ver­si­ty, where she taught for a year before mov­ing to the UK, when she obtained a post­grad­u­ate degree from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Lon­don. She pre­vi­ous­ly worked as a for­eign cor­re­spon­dent for Venezue­la’s The Dai­ly Jour­nal, and her writ­ing has also appeared in The Euro­pean. She cur­rent­ly lives in Lon­don with her fam­i­ly. When Time Stopped is her first book.
