Enrico Pellegrini was born in Turin, Italy in 1971. He made his literary debut at the age of 19 with the novel Cuor di Panna (e i suoi amici), which was published by Edizioni Milvia in 1990, and republished in 1999 by Bompiani with its orginal title Torino Caponord (e il Pinguino Stellato Vestito di Seta).

His second novel, La Negligenza (Marsilio 1997, Bompiani 1999, Marsilio 2016) won the prestigious Premio Selezione Campiello.

His third novel, Something Great and Beautiful, first written in English, is Enrico's literary debut in the English language, to be published in the U.S. by Other Press in September 2018. The book was first published in Italy to wide critical acclaim under the title Ai nostri desideri.
