About the Author
Karolina Ramqvist is one of the most influential writers and feminists of her generation in Sweden. She has written five novels to date and is widely celebrated for her powerful ability to provoke quiet yet fierce questions rather than provide loud and easy answers. In her skillful hands, contemporary issues of sexuality, commercialization, isolation, and belonging become highly charged and, at the same time, completely unaffected. In 2015 Ramqvist was awarded the prestigious P.O. Enquist Literary Prize for her novel The White City (Grove). The Bear Woman (2019) is her fifth and latest novel.
Saskia Vogel is a writer and Swedish-to-English translator whose work focuses on feminism, desire, and power. Her debut novel, Permission, was translated into five languages and longlisted for the Believer Book Award. Her translation of Johannes Anyuru's They Will Drown in Their Mothers' Tears won the CLMP Firecracker Award for Fiction, and she was longlisted for the PEN Translation Award for Jessica Schiefauer's Girls Lost. Vogel is a recipient of the Berlin Senat grant for non-German literature and of a Swedish Authors' Fund working grant.
