Nino Haratischwili (Georgian: ნინო ხარატიშვილი; (born 8 June 1983) is a German novelist, playwright, and theater director.[1] She has received numerous awards, including the Adelbert von Chamisso Prize, the Kranichsteiner Literaturpreis, and the Literaturpreis des Kulturkreises der deutschen Wirtschaft.

Haratischwili was born and raised in Tbilisi, Georgia, where she attended a German-language school. To escape the political and social chaos that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union, she moved to Germany for two years in the early 1990s with her mother, where she attended seventh and eighth grades of school. Her family returned to Georgia afterwards. Haratischwili later moved to Germany again to attend drama school in Hamburg.[1] After working as a theater director in Hamburg for several years, she published her first book, Juja, in 2010. She became a German citizen in 2012.

Haratischwili currently lives in Hamburg.[2]
