Marco Lodoli was born in Rome in 1956, where he still lives and teaches classical subjects in a training school in the suburbs. He started his literary career as a poet and then in 1986 he published prose with his Diario di un millennio che fugge (Diary of a fleeting millennoum). His next novel, Snack bar Budapest (1987), was made into a film by director Tinto Brass. In 1990 he won the Piero Chiara proze; in 1992 the Grinzane Cavour, in 1996 the Palazzo al Bosco Prize for his novel Cani e Lupi (Dogs and Wolves), and in 1997 once again the Grizane Cavour Award for Il vento (The Wind).
He is a film critic for the weekly magazine Diario and his reviews have been published in a book entitled Fuori dal cinema (Beyond the cinema). He also writes for la Repubblica, about the city and about schools. He has written the libretto for a radio opera entitled, La puntualitą fu un mio capolavoro (Punctuality was my masterpiece) (1996), and also written the words of songs for important Italian bands such as La Crus.
 
Comments about him

"The reader remembers the music of lyrical prose addressing insurmountable issues, alluding to what cannot be defined with the gracefulness of those who respect mysteries and to not expect to reveal them".
