Indrek Koff (b. 1975) is a writer, translator, and publisher from Estonia. He graduated from the University of Tartu in French language and literature. Koff has translated from the French and Portuguese into Estonian a number of highly important works by authors including Foucault, Maeterlinck, Houellebecq, Claude Lévi-Strauss, Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt, Machado de Assis and others. Koff writes mainly for children, being the author of 9 children’s books. Still, his characteristically pithy writing for adult readers makes him one of the most intriguing authors on Estonia’s poetry scene today. His compact writing is characterized by the use of inner monolugues and alternating viewpoints.
