Guillermo Martínez

Guillermo Martínez was born in Bahía Blanca, in Argentina, in 1962. In barely a decade he has become one of the most important writers of his generation. His book Los crimenes de Oxford has been translated into thirty-seven languages and made into a film; his La muerta lenta de Luciana B was translated into nineteen languages and is being filmed. He is only the second Argentine writer (after Borges) to have been published in the New Yorker (“Vast Hell,” April 29, 2009).
