Nuria Amat (Barcelona) graduated in Philosophy and Liberal Arts and has a doctorate degree in Media Studies. Her novels and short story collections have established her as one of the most distinguished Spanish narrators in recent years. She also cultivates the genres of essay, poetry, journalism, and theatre. Some of her novels, such as Todos somos Kafka, were pioneers in the nineties of a metaliterary way of understanding literature, giving her a very personal voice that was confirmed with titles such as La intimidad, El país del alma (finalist of the Premio Internacional de Novela Rómulo Gallegos 2001) or Reina de América (Premio Ciudad de Barcelona 2002). After Deja que la vida llueva sobre mí, she was awarded the Premi Ramon Llull in 2011 for the novel Amor i guerra, her debut work in Catalan.
