Giuliana Sanguinetti Katz is retired professor of Italian (University of Toronto). She has published The Uses of Myth in Ippolito Nievo and Dialogues for Practice in Idiomatic Italian. She has co-edited the proceedings of conferences: Pirandello and the Modern Theatre, Le fonti di Pirandello and Theatre and the Visual Arts. She has co-edited a collection of essays on Natalia Ginzburg: Natalia Ginzburg A Voice of the Twentieth Century. She has translated (with Anne Urbancic) three novels and two plays from Italian to English. She has published numerous articles on various authors and filmmakers; in particular studies on Pirandello as screenwriter and on his influence on Truffaut, Woody Allen and Antonioni. More recently she wrote an article on the relationship between Fellini's dreams and his films. Much of her work applies psychoanalytic theory to literature, theatre and film.

L'attesa (The Wait) tells the story of a Sicilian mother who lives with her son's fiancée, and refrains from telling the fiancée that her son will not return. It is loosely based on two works by Luigi Pirandello: La vita che ti diedi and La camera in attesa.
