Hana Andronikova
Born in 1967 in Zlín, Hana Andronikova studied English and Czech literature at Charles University. Her first novel, Zvuk slunečních hodin [The Sound of the Sundial] (2001), was published to great acclaim, receiving the Book Club Literary Award in 2001 and the 2002 Magnesia Litera Award/Discovery of the Year category. This wide-ranging tale ranges from early 1920’s Zlín to 1930’s India to a Nazi concentration camp and contemporary America. Her collection of short stories, Srdce na udici [Heart on the Hook] (2002), confirmed her prominent position among the major names of contemporary Czech prose. Hana Andronikova lives in Prague.
