Jonas Hassen Khemiri

Jonas Hassen Khemiri

Jonas Hassen Khemiri is one of the most important writers of his generation in Sweden with four novels and six plays translated into 15 languages. When his debut novel, One Eye Red, was published in 2003, Khemiri’s eccentric and imaginative prose reached an audience far beyond traditional literary circles. His novel Everything I don’t remember, to be published in September, has been sold to ten countries, including the U.S. In 2013, Khemiri’s open letter to the Swedish Minister of Justice in response to a controversial police project rapidly became one of the most shared articles on social media in Swedish history.
