BiographyMaryam Hooleh was born in 1978 in Tehran and started writing from an early age. She is a challenging voice of her generation and her disquietingly surreal poems have been translated to English, Swedish, French, Kurdish and Turkish. She has been considered among the most formidable representatives of the new generation of Iranian poets in exile.
Maryam's first book The Kite Will Never Fly in My Hands was published in 1998, followed by a second, In the Alleys of Athens, in 1999.
In 2000 she was invited by The Iranian Women’s Studies Foundation to Sweden, where her third book Cursed Booth was released by Baran publications. In 2003 she won a literary scholarship from Swedish PEN and moved to Sweden, where she now lives and has since published three more books of her poetry.
