Mariana Enríquez

An Argentine journalist, novelist, and short-story writer. She creates horror stories inspired by corruption, inequality, and violence that blur the line with reality and bring attention to Argentina’s plight and by extension, most of Latin America’s plight as well. Her writing feels close if you’ve lived through similar experiences.

Her latest novel, Our Share of the Night, was awarded the prestigious Premio Herralde de Novela. Her collections of stories Things We Lost in the Fire gained much deserved praise and was named a Best Book of the Year by Boston Globe, PASTE Magazine, Words Without Borders, Grub Street, Remezccla, and Entropy Magazine.

If are craving a spooky but realistic read that showcases Latin American lives, check out some of her work:
