Award-winning author Jessica Schiefauer (b. 1978) has established herself as one of Sweden's foremost writers of literary young adult fiction. Her widely praised first novel, If You Were Me (2009), was followed by the August Prize-winning The Boys (2011). Translated into several languages, The Boys was also nominated for the Nordic Council Debut Children's Book Award. In addition to two theater adaptations of The Boys (2014 and 2017), the film based on the book, Girls Lost (2016), was a huge critical success and won several international awards. Schiefauer's third novel, The Eyes of The Lake (2015), also won the August Prize, thus cementing her position on the Sweden literary scene. Exploring questions of self-esteem, coming of age, sexuality and gender, Schiefauer engages adults as well as young adults. She has contributed short stories to the erotica collection Hot (2012) and the science fiction collection Other Ways - Ten New Utopias (2015), among others. Schiefauer holds a teaching degree in Swedish, English and creative writing. She lives in Gothenburg, Sweden. Saskia Vogel is from Los Angeles and lives in Berlin, where she works as a writer and Swedish-to-English literary translator. She has written on the themes of gender, power and sexuality for publications such as Granta, The White Review, The Offing, and The Quietus. Her translations include work by leading female authors, such as Katrine Marcal, Karolina Ramqvist and the modernist eroticist Rut Hillarp. Previously, she worked in London as Granta magazine's global publicist and in Los Angeles as an editor at the AVN Media Network, where she reported on the business of sex work and adult pleasure products.
