Dorota Masłowska is a Polish writer, playwright, and journalist and the recipient of the prestigious Polityka Prize for her debut novel Wojna polsko-ruska pod flagą biało-czerwoną (Snow White and Russian Red, Grove Atlantic), published when she was just nineteen years old. The book garnered massive critical acclaim in Poland. Since then, she has written several novels and plays and has become a celebrated literary figure in Poland. Honey, I Killed the Cats, her second novel to be published in English, has been adapted for stage and portions were made into a short film directed by Marcin Nowak. She currently resides in Warsaw. Soon after Masłowska turned to theatre, writing two plays: A Couple of Poor, Polish-Speaking Romanians (Dwoje biednych Rumunów mówiących po polsku) in 2006 and No Matter How Hard We Tried or All is Right Between Us (the title being a verse from a song by the punk group Siekiera [Ax] – Między nami dobrze jest) in 2008.
