Portrait of writer Reka Mán-Várhegyi

Réka Mán-Várhegyi

Réka Mán-Várhegyi (1979) spent her childhood in Târgu Mureș, Romania, and now lives in Budapest, working as editor at a children’s book publisher. Her first collection of short stories, Boldogtalanság az Auróra-telepen (Unhappiness at the Aurora Housing Estate, 2014) was hailed as a remarkably mature debut. Besides that collection, Mán-Várhegyi has five children’s books and a book for young adults to her name, as well as a novel, Magnetic Hill (2018).
