About the Author
Theodor Kallifatides has published more than forty works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that have been translated around the world. Born in Greece in 1938, Kallifatides immigrated in 1964 to Sweden, where he began his literary career. As a translator, he has brought August Strindberg and Ingmar Bergman to Greek readers, and Giannis Ritsos and Mikis Theodorakis to Swedish ones. He has received numerous awards for his work in both Greece and Sweden. His previous books include Another Life (Other Press, 2018) and The Siege of Troy (Other Press, 2019). He lives in Sweden.

Marlaine Delargy studied Swedish and German at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, and she taught German for almost twenty years.

Marlaine has also translated nine books in Viveca Sten's Sandhamn Murders series and two books in her Åre Murders series.
Praise for Another Life

"Charming...Kallifatides has a novelist's ear for anecdote, a dramatist's for dialogue, and a poet's for aphorism." --Times Literary Supplement

"In his elegiac, tender meditation on migrations, both geographic and psychic--from one country to another, from one language to another, from youth to old age, from the time of the present to memories of the past--Kallifatides offers his reader a personal politics of the human." --Siri Hustvedt, author of The Blazing World
