Michela Murgia

Biography

Michela Murgia was born in 1972 in Cabras, Sardinia. Her first book, Il mondo deve sapere [The World Must Know], was originally conceived as a blog before being turned into a book. It tells of life in a telemarketing call centre. Her latest book has a religious theme, Murgia having been brought up Catholic and having retained her faith. She achieved success with Accabadora (Accabadora), which has been translated into several languages, including, surprisingly enough, English.
