Cornelisse, Paulien

Paulien Cornelisse (1976) is an author, comedian and columnist. She made her literary debut with the rollicking office serial De verwarde cavia (‘The Office Life of a Guinea Pig’), on the Dutch best-seller list since its initial publication in April 2016. Her non-fiction book Taal is zeg maar echt mijn ding (‘Language Is Like Totally My Thing’, 2009) sold half a million copies and was awarded the prestigious Tollensprijs for its ‘remarkable literary achievement.’ Her comedy shows have received numerous prizes. A theater jury wrote of her work: ‘Stories you’d like to wrap up in a ribbon, every one of them. Extremely clever.’ Paulien Cornelisse lives in Amsterdam, having previously lived in Japan and the USA. She is a co-founder of Echt Gebeurd, the Dutch version of The Moth. She has the same hair color as David Bowie and has the not-so-secret wish to write a book about Austrian dumplings.
