Angi Máté was hailed as one of the most original voices in contemporary Hungarian literature. She has published fiction and children’s literature in some of the most important Hungarian-language publications in both Hungary and Transylvania, where she was born in 1971. Single-authored volumes include Mamó/Nanna (Cluj: Koinónia, 2009 – reprinted 2011 and 2013), Volt egyszer egy/Once Upon a Time (Budapest: Pozsonyi Pagony, 2010), Ez egy susogó levél/Rustling Leaf (Szentendre: Cerkabella Kiadó, 2011), Kapitány és Narancshal/Captain and Orangefish (Budapest: Magvető, 2012), Az emlékfoltozók/Patching Up Memories (Budapest: Magvető, 2012). Máté’s work is regularly anthologized in collections bringing together major contemporary voices. To date Mamó has been translated into French, Dutch and Bulgarian, and was also adapted for the stage as Csipke/Lace (Hungarian Theatre in Cluj, Romania).
