Lina Wolff has lived and worked in Italy and Spain. During her years in Valencia and Madrid, she began to write her short story collection Många människor dör som du (‘Many People Die Like You’; Albert Bonniers Förlag, 2009). Bret Easton Ellis and the Other Dogs, her first novel, was awarded the prestigious Vi Magazine Literature Prize and shortlisted for the 2013 Swedish Radio Award for Best Novel of the Year. She now lives in southern Sweden. Her second novel, De polyglotta älskarna (‘The Polyglot Lovers’), is forthcoming from Albert Bonniers Förlag in 2016.

Praise for Lina Wolff

  • As a prose writer, Wolff amazes us once again with the rare ability to draw the reader straight in. There are authors that need to summon all their skill to describe the café around the corner. Others have it in their blood, unfair as that may seem.’ Salka Hallström Bornold, Expressen
  • ‘Lina Wolff’s exuberance and narrative zest are exquisite. This is simply good writing.’ Rebecka Åhlund, Borås Tidning
  • ‘Wolff is reminiscent of Pedro Almodóvar, twisting and turning the gender roles, allowing women to shine and gain the upper hand.’ Anneli Jordahl, Sydsvenskan
