Published in 2018 and staged for the first time in January 2020, her latest novel, ''Other People," is now being translated into German, French, and Russian. Masłowska is also the author of "Honey, I Killed the Cats," translated by Benjamin Paloff and published by Deep Vellum in 2019. She lives in Warsaw, Poland.
