Teresa Pous (Llinars del Vallès, September 1956), a fiction writer and author of books of conversations, has a degree in Philosophy and a diploma in Librarianship from the University of Barcelona. Her study of the philosophical poem Primero Sueño (First Dream) by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz led her to the further project of analysing the passages referring to medical knowledge of the time when the Mexican poetess’s work was written, and once again forged a link between her interest in medicine and her passion for literature.
She was curator of the History of Medicine Museum of Catalonia and subsequently worked as a librarian assigned to the Generalitat (Government) of Catalonia Libraries Service. She has organised scientific and literary exhibitions, publishes articles of literary criticism in the Culture supplement of the newspaper Avui, and is a member of the Catalan PEN Club's Women Writers Committee. She was awarded the 2006 Marian Vayreda Prize for her first novel La cançó dels deportats (Song of the Deportees), and in 2010 she received the Ciutat de Palma Llorenç Villalonga prize for her novel El metge d'Atenes. She has published several interview books with public figures such as mossèn Ballarín, Moisès Broggi or Artur Mas.
She is a member of Associació d'Escriptors de Llengua Catalana (Association of Catalan Language Writers).
