About the Author

Inès Cagnati (1937–2007) was a French novelist. From a family of Italian immigrants, she grew up in a rural region in southwest France where her parents were farmers. After studying literature, she passed the French national exam to become a teacher. Her childhood in a rural setting as well as her struggle to integrate into society strongly influenced her work. In one way or another, all four of her novels explore these themes.
 
Liesl Schillinger is a literary critic, writer, and translator, and teaches journalism and criticism at the New School for Social Research in New York City. Her articles, reviews, and essays have appeared in The New York Times, Foreign Policy, The New York Review of Books, The New Yorker, The New Republic, The Washington Post, and other publications. She has translated novels from the French and the German for Penguin Classics, Viking, and New York Review Books, and is the author of Wordbirds: An Irreverent Lexicon for the 21st Century. In 2017 she was named a Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters of France.
