JACQUELINE HARPMAN was born in Etterbeek, Belgium, in 1929. Being half Jewish, the family moved to Casablanca when the Nazis invaded, and returned home after the war. After studying French literature she started training to be a doctor, but could not complete her medical studies when she contracted tuberculosis. She turned to writing in 1954 and her first work was published in 1958. In 1980 she qualified as a psychoanalyst. She had given up her writing after her fourth book was published, and resumed her career as a novelist only some twenty years later. She has written twelve novels and won several literary prizes. She is married to an architect and has two children. Reviewing her novel, The Mistress of Silence, a haunting, Kafkaeque story, Pierre Maury in Le Soir called it "the product of a fertile imagination that succeeds in setting before us a world totally alien from the one to which we have been accustomed". ROS SCHWARTZ, who has translated fiction by such authors as Ousmane Sembene, Andree Chedid and Sebastien Japrisot as well as many works of non-fiction, has been a full-time translator since 1982. She ran translation workshops at Goldsmith's College, London University, and teaches on the part-time MA course in translation studies at Middlesex University.Language Notes:
