About: Irene Zimmerman

My name is Irene Zimmerman. I was born and raised in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. I was, as a child, deeply inspired by the stories told by my ancient relatives and the neighborhood I called home. The sky above the Gowanus Canal, the feeling of the brown vynil of my parent’s old German car they named Hitler’s Revenge, Rocco and his cigars– I experienced the world through my senses, and that is how I write. I write what I see when the words come. I hope you can see it, too. Enjoy
