Aglaja Veteranyi

Aglaja Veteranyi (1962–2002) was born in Bucharest to a family of circus artists who toured Europe relentlessly until finally settling in Switzerland. She worked as an actress, performer, and artist, as well as a writer, and only published one novel— Why the Child Is Cooking in the Polenta—during her lifetime, though other books have appeared posthumously. She committed suicide, in 2002, by drowning herself in Lake Zurich.
