About the Author

Vedrana Rudan was born in 1949 in Opatija, Croatia. She was a radio journalist until she lost her job for mocking the Croatian President and his sash (yes, really). Her books deal with uncomfortable issues: war, prejudice, spousal abuse, marriage, dysfunctional families… Her blunt language and a dark sense of humor make Vedrana Rudan’s books domestic and international bestsellers.
