Ludmila Kábrtová: Always women
– Czechia

Born in Náchod in 1971, Lidmila Kábrtová studied journalism at the Faculty of Social Sciences of Charles University and marketing communication at Tomáš Baťa University in Zlín. She has published two books of prose: Koho vypijou lišky (Who Will the Foxes Drink, 2013) and Místa ve tmě (Places in Darkness, 2018). The critic Daniel Mukner wrote the following about her second book: “Places in Darkness ... contains twelve short stories whose protagonists are always women who are abandoned, oppressed, taken advantage of or abused by dominant and unstable men. These women repeatedly meet each other throughout the stories.”
