Alejandra Laurencich


Considered by readers and critics to be one of the most prestigious authors of her generation, her stories’ impact is created by her enpathetic, engaging female characters and gripping plots. She lives in Buenos Aires where she studied Fine Art before moving into cinematography, which taught her the mystique of narrative at a very young age. Her books have won awards such as the Fondo Nacional de las Artes and Municipal Prizes. She is the founder and editorial director of one of the most eminent literary journals of recent years: La Balandra | other fiction, which is aimed particularly at young writers. Laurencich passes on her passion for writing through this publication and regular workshops.

"Laurencich is following in the footsteps of Virginia Woolf

when she chooses to tell her story in  inexpressible feminine interior

monologues of a kind that didn’t exist previously in literature."

Elsa Drucaroff



"Laurencich has a distinctive style in the way that she manages

characters and creates situations, with maximum economy

of language and genuine skill."

Nina Thürler
