Charlotte Pothuizen (1982) studied Polish literature and musicology in Amsterdam and Warsaw. Her Dutch translation of ‘Król’ (‘De koning’) by Szczepan Twardoch (Nieuw Amsterdam, 2019) was shortlisted for the Europese Literatuurprijs 2020. The translation of the sequel, ‘Królestwo’ (‘Het koninkrijk’) will be published in the summer of 2021. Last year she and Dirk Zijlstra co-translated ‘Prowadź swój pług przez kości umarłych’ (‘Jaag je ploeg over de botten van de doden’, De Geus, 2020) by Nobel-prize winner Olga Tokarczuk. In the winter of 2021, Querido will publish her second translation of a work by Włodzimierz Odojewski (‘Czas odwrócony’; ‘Verdraaide tijd’).
