Najat El Hachmi

Najat El Hachmi Buhhu was born in Morocco and from the age of eight she has lived in Vic. She has a degree in Arab Studies from the University of Barcelona. She has been writing since she was eleven, at first for fun, but gradually her writing became a way of channeling her unease and a way of approaching the two worlds to which she belonged. Her first novel L'últim Patriarca (Planeta '08) won the Ramon Llull Prize in 2008 and was shortlisted for the Prix Méditerranée Étranger 2009.
