Melissa Rossi


Former nightlife columnist for Seattle Weekly and European travel columnist for National Geographic Traveler, Melissa Rossi is the author of 12 books, including the biography Courtney Love: Queen of Noise (1996) and a series about geopolitics. Living in seven countries since 2008, she keeps shoring up here. “Wherever I am—Chiang Mai, Mumbai, Manhattan, Brussels, Seattle, Portland, Paris—I wander the Barri Gòtic in my mind,” she said. “I dream about it constantly.” The barrio is also the setting for her comedic novel-in-progress, Ghostwriting with Camus.
