About the author










The Jewish-Czech author Martin Vop¿nka is one of the leading voices in world literature, writing 'with a deft and compellingly simple control of sentences that is reminiscent of both Kafka and Kundera' - Choice.
Martin Vop¿nka was born in Prague in 1963. The son of the famous mathematician Petr Vop¿nka, Martin studied Mathematics and Physics at the Czech Technical University in Prague, but was always intent on being a writer. His first novel, Kameny z hor (Rocks from the Mountains) recorded memories and emotions from a journey across the Romanian Carpathians. The themes explored in his books go beyond the local themes of much Czech literature. He views the contemporary world with caution, and contributes polemic articles to the national daily paper MF Dnes. In 2016 his Nová Planeta (New Planet) won the country's premier Golden Ribbon Award.
