Mariana Enriquez

An Argentinian journalist, novelist, and short-story writer, Mariana Enriquez wrote her first novel, published in 1995, in “a very DIY, punk spirit,” on a typewriter for her friends to enjoy. In 2009 she published the short-story collection The Dangers of Smoking in Bed, followed by another collection, Things We Lost in the Fire, in 2016. “In her hands,” wrote essayist Sloane Crosley of the latter work, “the country’s inequality, beauty, and corruption tangle together to become a manifestation of our own darkest thoughts and fears.”
