About the Author

Rachel Cusk nació en Canadá en 1967 y su infancia transcurrió en Los Ángeles hasta mudarse a Reino Unido en 1974. Estudió Filología Inglesa en Oxford y publicó su primera novela, La salvación de Agnes (1993), con veintiséis años; las novelas de Cusk han ganado y sido finalistas de numerosos premios. Fue nombrada uno de los Mejores Novelistas Británicos por la revista Granta en 2003. Su versión de Medea de Eurípides fue dirigida por Rupert Goold y fue finalista del premio Susan Blackburn Smith. La feminidad y la sátira social fueron los temas centrales de sus primeras novelas. Como respuesta a los problemas formales de la novela para representar la experiencia femenina, empezó a escribir también no ficción. Surgieron así sus libros autobiográficos sobre la maternidad y el divorcio, A Life’s Work (2001) y Despojos (2012), que fueron tan revolucionarios como controvertidos. Tras un largo periodo de reflexión, se propuso desarrollar una nueva forma que pudiera representar la experiencia personal, pero evitando la subjetividad y literalidad y permaneciendo al margen de la convención narrativa. Ese proyecto se convirtió en la trilogía integrada por A contraluz (2014), Tránsito (2016) y Prestigio (2018).

Rachel Cusk is the author of nine novels, three non-fiction works, a play, and numerous shorter essays and memoirs. Her first novel, Saving Agnes, was published in 1993. Her most recent novel, Kudos, the final part of the Outline trilogy, will be published in the US and the UK in May 2018.

Saving Agnes won the Whitbread First Novel Award, The Country Life won the Somerset Maugham Award and subsequent books have been shortlisted for the Orange Prize, Whitbread Prize, Goldsmiths Prize, Bailey’s Prize, and the Giller Prize and Governor General’s Award in Canada. She was named one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists in 2003. Her version of Euripides’ Medea was directed by Rupert Goold and was shortlisted for the Susan Blackburn Smith Award.

Rachel was born in Canada in 1967 and spent her early childhood in Los Angeles before moving to the UK in 1974. She studied English at Oxford and published her first novel Saving Agnes when she was twenty six, and its themes of femininity and social satire remained central to her work over the next decade. In responding to the formal problems of the novel representing female experience she began to work additionally in non-fiction. Her autobiographical accounts of motherhood and divorce (A Life’s Work and Aftermath) were groundbreaking and controversial.

Most recently, after a long period of consideration, she attempted to evolve a new form, one that could represent personal experience while avoiding the politics of subjectivity and literalism and remaining free from narrative convention. That project became a trilogy (Outline, Transit and Kudos). Outline was one of The New York Times’ top 5 novels in 2015. Judith Thurman’s 2017 profile of Rachel in The New Yorker comments “Many experimental writers have rejected the mechanics of storytelling, but Cusk has found a way to do so without sacrificing its tension. Where the action meanders, language takes up the slack. Her sentences hum with intelligence, like a neural pathway.”
