Olga Tokarczuk


Olga Tokarczuk (1962) is one of the most important contemporary Polish authors. Her prose explores the mythical world between dream and reality and is often based on local legends and stories, whereby she interweaves various narrative genres with one another. She now lives in her 'new, small fatherland' of Silesia, a region with a culturally and politically complex and unique history that plays an important role in her celebrated novel House for day, house for night (2000). During her residency in Flanders, she wrote the novel Anna in the catacombs, which is based on an old Sumerian myth.
