Terézia Mora was born in 1971 in Sopron, Hungary. In 1990 she moved to Berlin, where she studied theater arts and screenwriting. Since 1998 she has worked as a freelance writer and translator of contemporary Hungarian novelists, notably Péter Esterházy. Her first book, Strange Material (Seltsame Materie, 1999), received rave reviews; one of its stories won the prestigious Ingeborg Bachmann Prize (1999). Day In Day Out (Alle Tage, 2004) represents her debut as a novelist; it was chosen the best German novel of the year at the Leipzig Book Fair.
