Arnon Yasha Yves (Arnon) Grünberg (born February 22 1971 in Amsterdam) is a Dutch Jewish writer. Some of his books were written using the heteronym Marek van der Jagt.

Grünberg made his literary debut in 1994 with the novel Blauwe maandagen (Blue Mondays), which won the Dutch prize for the best debut novel that year. In 2000, under the heteronym Marek van der Jagt, he won the best debut prize again for his novel De geschiedenis van mijn kaalheid (The Story of My Baldness).

Grünberg publishes novels about once a year but also writes columns and essays in a wide variety of Dutch newspapers and magazines. He does not restrict himself only to the written media, but also reads a story for the radio every week and for some time he was host of a cultural television program. He also writes a blog for the literary Internet magazine Words Without Borders.

His most recent novel, Tirza, won the Dutch Golden Owl Prize for Literature and the Libris Prize. His books are translated in many languages, including English, German and Japanese.
