About the author (2007)

Enquist's writing is characterized by political consciousness and an interest in the past as it affects or reflects the present. During the politicized 1960s, Enquist was a principle practitioner of documentarism. He is both an important playwright and a novelist.

Tiina Nunnally has translated work by Astrid Lindgren, Henning Mankell, and Peter Hoeg, among others.
