Nora Nadjarian is a prize-winning poet and writer from Cyprus. Best known for her short story collection Ledra Street (2006), she has been published and awarded for her work internationally. Her work has been cited in the Guardian and a holiday reading guide in the Telegraph (2014). Stories included in Selfie and Other Stories have appeared in Best European Fiction 2011 (Dalkey Archive Press), the Irish Times and have been shortlisted for the Seán Ó Faoláin Short Story Prize.
Her work has also appeared in the anthologies Being Human (Bloodaxe Books, 2011) and Capitals (Bloomsbury, 2017).
Intense and atmospheric, sometimes funny and always honest, these stories are narratives about women on journeys of self-discovery. Tales of love and loss, human contact and entanglement are told with the haunting resonance of dream and fable.
