Elfriede Jelinek

Elfriede Jelinek was born in 1946 and grew up in Vienna, where she studied music and later theater history and art history. Alongside, she began writing poetry and established herself as a leading, if controversial, member of postwar Austria's first generation of artists who struggled to come to terms with the legacy of the Holocaust. Among her most famous novels are The Piano Teacher (1983), Lust (1989), The Children of the Dead (1995). Her novels and plays have been translated into more than 30 languages and she received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2004.
