Pedro Mairal

Pedro Mairal made a splash with his debut novel, na noche con Sabrina Love, which tells the story of an 18-year-old boy who wins a night with the porn stars of his dreams. That book was made into a film by Alejandro Agresti and was widely translated. Mairal, who was born in Buenos Iares in 1970, is a professor of English literature; he has been recognized as one of the most original voices in Latin American literature today and in 1998 he was awarded the Premio Clarín. He is also the author of the book of short stories Hoy temprano and the novels El año del desierto and Salvatierra. In 2007 he was named by the Hay Festival in Bogotá as one of the 39 best Latin American authors under the age of 39. He lives in Buenos Aires.

One of the best Latin American authors.
