Loekie Zvonik

Loekie Zvonik (pseudonym of Hermine Marie Louise Zvonicek, 1935-2000) was a Flemish-Czech writer who made her debut with the autobiographical Who Was the Hat Maker?, which received the Debut Prize in 1976. Despite the success of her first novel, only two more books followed and eventually Zvonik retired from public life altogether. In 2018 ‘Who Was the Hat Maker?’ was reissued and once again garnered very positive reviews.
