About the Author
Pavel Srut (b. 1940) is an award-winning poet, essayist, writer and translator who belongs to the generation of post-war Czech writers whose voices gained prominence in the flowering of Prague Spring, voices silenced by censorship in the aftermath of the 1968 Soviet Invasion of Czechoslovakia. Srut earned the Jaroslav Seifert Award in 2000 and the Czech PEN Club's Karel Capek Prize for lifetime achievement in literature in 2012. Aside from being a poet, rock lyricist and translator, Srut is also a celebrated writer of children's literature. He lives in Prague, Czech Republic, where he was named Czech Writer Laureate for 2015. Deborah Helen Garfinkle is a writer, poet, and translator whose criticism, translations, and creative writing have appeared in literary reviews and journals in the US and abroad. Worm-Eaten Time is Garfinkle's second full-length translation from the Czech, and its translation won her a Literary Translation Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and a PEN/Heim Translation Fund Grant. Her first book, The Old Man's Verses: Poems by Ivan Divis, was nominated for the 2008 Northern California Book Award. She lives in San Francisco.
