Alberto Fuguet

Born in Santiago de Chile, Alberto Fuguet spent his early childhood in California. He is one of the most prominent Latin American authors of his generation and one of the leaders of the literary movement known as McOndo, which proclaims the end of magical realism. Time/CNN selected him as one of the influential Latin Americans of the 21st century. He has directed five movies including Música campesina and a documentary called Locations: Searching for Rusty James on Francis Ford Coppola´s Rumble Fish. He has been Visting Writer at UCLA and Vanderbilt and has been awarded the Fullbright and Guggenheim grants. He lives in Santiago de Chile.

There is a certain tenderness to Fuguet’s writing that makes it at times deep-felt. There are moments in which I am reading Fuguet and I feel that there is a certain fragility to the author, what he is writing and in general in the relationship between author and writing. Yes, there, in that exchange between author and writing there’s something fragile that to me makes it heartfelt.
— Roberto Bolaño, author of 2666 and The Savage Detectives
His prose and ambitious stories as well as the leadership he has assumed among the young ‘parricides’ have made Fuguet the most energetic voice of his generation.
— Mario Vargas Llosa, Nobel Prize Winner
