Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

Ilma Rakusa was born in Slovakia in 1946 as the daughter of a Slovenian father and a Hungarian mother. In 1951 her family moved to Zürich, where the author still lives after studying there, in Paris and St. Petersburg. She wrote her dissertation in 1971 on the motif of loneliness in Russian literature and has been teaching college since that time, first full-time and later part-time. In addition to being a freelance author, she works as a translator, critic, and editor. In 2003 she was awarded the Adelbert-von-Chamisso Prize.
