Edin Viso lives and works in Edmonton, Alberta. Although Viso has written and published numerous books in his native Yugoslavia, Quatro Stadgoni is his second book written in English. His first book Balkan Tattoo was published in 2011. Viso has been described as, "a poet who knows the value of a blanket, a single orange, a moment shared–this moment. He is a man who is unafraid to take off his skin and dance in his bones."
