About the Author

Tomas Eloy Martinez was born in Argentina in 1934. During the military dictatorship, he lived in exile in Venezuela where he wrote his first three books, all of which were republished in Argentina in 1983, in the first months of democracy. He was until his death in January 2010 a professor and director of the Latin American Program at Rutgers University. He was shortlisted for the 2005 International Man Booker Prize.

Frank Wynne has translated numerous books from both French and Spanish into English, including the work of Michel Houellebecq, Marcelo Figueras, and Jules Verne. His accolades as a translator include the Scott Moncrieff Prize, the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, and the IMPAC Dublin Literary Festival Prize.
