Author Biography - Gudrun Pausewang

Gudrun Pausewang is Germany's leading writer for teenagers. She deals with political issues and is an activist herself, passionately committed to the struggle for human rights and a better world.John Brownjohn is one of Britain's foremost translators from French and German. His work has won numerous awards on both sides of the Atlantic, including the US PEN Prize, the Helen and Kurt Wolff Prize, and the Schlegel-Tieck Prize on three occasions. He has been much praised for his deft and elegant use of language: seamless and idiomatic, without a single clumsy construction, It's a remarkable achievement to sustain a breakneck pace and never once sound as if the book were written in anything other than English.' John is the translator of Lilli Thal's Mimus, recently published by Allen + Unwin.
