“I lived a lot at night, and the Moon was recurring in my life.” Mariana Enriquez, recognized as one of Argentina’s best writers in her generation, here describes how the Moon reminds her of her youth when she was “quite a dark gothic girl,” and how writing during the day paradoxically has made her literature darker.
Mariana Enriquez (b. 1973) is an Argentinean novelist, journalist and short story writer. Among her work is the novel ‘Como desaparecer completamente’ (2004) and the short story collections ‘Los peligros de fumar en la cama’ (2009) and ‘Things we lost in the Fire’ (2016) (Las Cosas que perdimos en el fuego, 2016), which was published to great critical acclaim. She lives in Buenos Aires.
Mariana Enriquez was interviewed by Christian Lund at the Louisiana Literature festival at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark in August 2018.
