Krisztián Grecsó was born in the village of Szegvár in 1976. He works as editor and critic for the two most important Hungarian literary journals. His collection of short stories »Pletykaanyu« (t: Tattletale) was named best prose book of 2001 and unleashed a scandal. In his novel »Lange nicht gesehn« (2007; t: Long time no see) he lovingly and ironically describes the odd goings on of inhabitants in a Hungarian village. Grecsó lives in Budapest.
