Elisabeth Asbrink is a journalist and author from Sweden. Her previous books have won the August Prize, the Danish-Swedish Cultural Fund Prize, and Poland's Kapuscinski Prize. 1947 is her fourth book in Swedish and the first of her works to be published in English. It will also be published across the world, including in Germany, Norway, Finland, Italy, Slovakia, Denmark, Australia, and the USA. Born in rural Herefordshire, Fiona Graham has led an international life with spells in Kenya, Germany, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Nicaragua, and Belgium. Reading Modern Languages at Oxford led her naturally to a career in translating and editing at the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Parliament, and the European Commission. She translates from Spanish, French, Dutch, Swedish, and German, and is currently the reviews editor at the Swedish Book Review. Fiona loves the great outdoors, especially in Sweden. In her scarce free time, she campaigns on human rights issues and sings with a Latin American choir.
