Michela Murgia was born in Cabras, Italy in 1972. She attended theological studies and worked as a religion teacher, as well as for the nonpolitical lay organization Azione Cattolica, before making her literary debut in 2006 with Il mondo deve sapere, which inspired the film Tutta la vita davanti by Paolo Virzi. She is also author of Viaggio in Sardegna, the novel Accabadora (winner of the 2010 Campiello Award), Ave Mary, and L’incontro. She has been an honorary member of the Coordination of Italian Female Theologians since 2011, and collaborates with many magazines and newspapers. Her books have been translated into more than twenty languages.
