Jacinta Nandi was born in East London in 1980 and came to Berlin in 2000. Her first book was published in 2011, her second in 2013 – her third in 2015 and she is currently working on the fourth. She has 2 children and perhaps that is why she has so much hope for the future, despite everything. She is a permanent member of the “Surfpoeten” and the Neukölln reading stage “Rakete 2000”. Nandi writes in German as well as in English, always incorporating words or sentences from the other language.
