Ariana Harwicz

Compared to Nathalie Sarraute and Virginia Woolf, Ariana Harwicz (b. Buenos Aires, 1977) is one of the most radical figures in contemporary Argentinian literature. Her prose is characterised by its violence, eroticism, irony and direct criticism of the clichés surrounding the notions of the family and conventional relationships. Her first novel, published in English in 2017 under Die, My Love, was shortlisted for the Republic of Consciousness Prize 2018, nominated for the First Book Award at the EIBF 2017 and longlisted for the Man Booker International. Feebleminded is Harwicz’s second novel and a sequel to Die, My Love in what the author herself has called ‘an involuntary trilogy’, to be completed by Precoz (Precocious). Feebleminded is currently being adapted for the stage in Argentina. Harwicz lives in France and has just finished her fourth novel Degenerate, which comes out in Spanish in November 2018.
