“I want my books to be a bone in the throat, not a dessert after dinner.”
Radka Denemarková (1968) is one of the most widely read contemporary Czech novelists. A graduate of German and Bohemian Studies at the Charles University, after defending her doctoral thesis in Czech literature, she worked as an assistant professor at the University of Economics and at the Czech Language Department of the Charles University, and in 1998–2004 at the Institute for Czech Literature of the CAS (she is the co-author of the Dictionary of Czech Writers since 1945, a monograph on E. Schorm, and a study on Milena Honzíková). At the same time, she worked as a lecturer and dramaturge at the Theatre Na Zábradlí in Prague. Since 2004 she has been a freelancer. She also transfers her deep interest in theatre and German themes into her literary work (among others, Death, You Will Not Be Afraid or Money from Hitler). Her literary erudition is also reflected in the formal form of some of her books, which have been described as experimental (the unconventional monograph Death, Thou Shalt Not Be Afraid or the novel Kobold). He also works in translation from German (among others H. Müller). She is a four-time winner of the most prestigious Czech literary award Magnesia Litera for her books Money from Hitler (2007), Death, You Will Not Be Afraid (2009) and Hours of Lead (2019), as well as for her translation of Herta Müllerová’s novel Atemschaukel (2011). Her books have been translated into many languages. She lives in Prague.
