Anna Enquist (b. 1945) made her debut as a poet in 1991, and now has five collections of poetry to her name. She received the C. Buddingh Prize for her first publication Soldatenliederen (Soldiers' Songs), and the Lucy B. and C.W. Van der Hoogt Prize for her subsequent collection Jachtscènes (Hunting Scenes). Her volumes of poetry have reached an exceptionally large public, as has her first prose work, Het meesterstuk (The Masterpiece, 1994). Her new book Het geheim (The Secret) has become an even greater success: more than 100,000 copies have been sold to date. Enquist combines writing with her work as a psychoanalyst.
