About the author (2005)

Paul Sohar was born in Hungary, and came to the US as a student, but quit his studies after receiving a B.A. in order to with three unpublished novels. He had more luck with his poetry and short stories. He started to publish in earnest only lately, with an anthology of ten contemporary Transylvanian-Hungarian poets in his translation came out. Since then, his translations and poetry have appeared in numerous journals such as Aurorean, Chelsea, Chiron, Kenyon Review, Parnassus, Partisan Review, Rattle, Seneca Review and more, culminating in the publication of Dancing Embers. His translation of another story book by Kanyadi (The Little Globe-trotting Mouse) was published by Honap in Budapest, Hungary.
