Selva Almada

Selva Almada (Entre Ríos, Argentina, 1973) is considered one of the most powerful voices of contemporary Argentinian and Latin American literature and one of the most influential feminist intellectuals of the region. Including her debut The Wind That Lays Waste, she has published two novels, a book of short stories, a book of journalistic fiction, and a kind of film diary (written on the set of Lucrecia Martel’s most recent film Zama, based on Antonio di Benedetto’s novel). She has been a finalist for the Rodolfo Walsh Award and for the Tigre Juan Award (both in Spain). Her work has been translated into French, Italian, Portuguese, German, Dutch, Swedish, and Turkish.
