Ariana Harwicz
Ariana Harwicz (b. Buenos Aires, 1977) is one of the most radical figures in contemporary Argentinian literature, compared to Nathalie Sarraute and Virginia Woolf. Her prose is characterised by its violence, eroticism, irony and direct criticism of the clichés surrounding the notions of the family and conventional relationships. Harwicz studied screenwriting and drama in Argentina, and earned a first degree in Performing Arts from the University of Paris VII as well as a Master’s degree in comparative literature from the Sorbonne. She has taught screenwriting and written two plays, which have been staged in Buenos Aires. Feebleminded (published by Charco Press in May 2019) is her second novel and the second instalment of an ‘involuntary’ trilogy, preceded by Die, My Love (Charco Press, 2017) and followed by Precoz [Precocious, 2015]. Her fourth novel is Degenerado [Degenerate], which comes out in Spanish in January 2019.
