Gabriela Babnik

could have had the same surname as the president of Ivory Coast (Ouattara), but decided to keep her own in the name of feminist ravishment. She is the author of four novels (Cotton Skin, In High Grass, Dry Season, Intimate), a collection of novelettes (Nocturnal landscapes) and a couple of radio plays. When she will gather enough courage, she will buy a coffee machine and move to Africa, but for now she – in Ljubljana – shoots birds in herself.
