Tatjana Soli
Tatjana Soli was born in Salzburg, Austria and lived in southern Italy before moving to the U.S. Her New York Times best-selling debut novel, The Lotus Eaters (St. Martin’s, 2010), is the gripping tale of a female photojournalist who is covering the Vietnam War. It was partially inspired by Soli’s time spent living at Fort Ord military base in Monterey, California.

The Lotus Eaters won the 2011 James Tait Black Prize, one of the oldest prizes in the U.K. It was also a New York Times Notable Book, an American Library Association Notable Book, and a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award among other honors.

Her second book, The Forgetting Tree (St. Martin's, 2012), tells the story of a California citrus ranching family and was a 2012 New York Times Editors’ Choice. Her short stories have appeared in Zyzzyva, Boulevard, Five Chapters, The Normal School, and The Sun. Her stories have been listed twice in "100 Distinguished Stories" in Best American Short Stories. She lives with her husband in Orange County, California.
