Olga Tokarczuk (b. 1962) is one of the most popular contemporary writers in Poland. She has twice won the NIKE Reader's Prize. Her work has been translated into French, German, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Norwegian. Publication in English proved slower, but her Dom dzienny, dom nocny (House of Day, House of Night), translated by Antonia Lloyd-Jones, is available from Granta books. It is set in the town of Nowa Ruda, a place with a hetergenous Polish, German, Czech and Austro-Hungarian heritage, and a tangled web of dreams and secrets to match.
