Marja Björk

Marja Björk (b. 1958) is a Helsinki-based freelance author. An unfailingly accurate portrayer of people, her text creeps under the skin and exposes cysts of self-deception – and sensitive spots, too. She has previously published the novels Porcelain (2008), Puma (2010) and Prole (2012).
