Born in Warsaw in 1964, she is a poet, novelist and writer of screenplays for films about art. A graduate in Psychology of the Academy of Catholic Theology, she has lectured at universities in Rome and Praetoria Rudzka's prose is marked by a search for the appropriate rhythms and melodies to set free a new language conveying the sensualism of feasts and the hungers of human passion. Her prose is characteristically fragmented, an open-ended "narrative jazz" imbued with poetic elements.

"I feel, think and write in images, impressions, touch, smells. The world that I have been allowed to perceive is not linguistic." Zyta Rudzka
