Tibor Noé

Kiss (1976, Hungary) is a Hungarian author living and working in Pécs. In her native Hungarian she has published three novels. Her novels have been translated into several languages including German, Polish, and Finnish. Kiss’s prose regularly foregrounds neglected suburbs and the disadvantaged members of Hungarian society. Her debut novel Inkognitó (‘Incognito’) told the autobiographic coming-of-age story of a football-mad boy in the eighties learning to embrace both his male and female personalities.
