Who is Liv Køltzow?

Liv Køltzow is a Norwegian novelist, playwright, biographer and essayist.

She published texts in the modernist literary magazine Profil. She was regarded as one of the central Norwegian feminist writers during the 1970s, and the short novel Hvem bestemmer over Bjørg og Unni? has been called Norway's first pamphlet of the militant and socialist feminism in the 1970s.

She received Gyldendal's Endowment in 1988, and was the first winner of the Amalie Skram Prize, in 1994. The novel Hvem har ditt ansikt was nominated for the Nordic Council's Literature Prize in 1989, but did not win the prize. She was awarded the Brage Prize in 1997 for the novel Verden forsvinner.
