Diego Vecchio

ARGENTINA, 1969

Diego Vecchio was born in Buenos Aires in 1969 and has lived in Paris since 1992. He is the author of three works of fiction: Historia calamitatum (Paradiso, 2000), Microbios (Microbes, Beatriz Viterbo, 2006), and Osos (Bears, Beatriz Viterbo, 2010) and one non-fiction work: Egocidios: Macedonio Fernández y la liquidación del yo (Egocides: Macedonio Fernández and the Liquidation of the Self, Beatriz Viterbo, 2003). He teaches Latin American literature and creative writing at the Paris 8 University. 

«Diego Vecchio has constructed a body of work full of subtle humour that only appears to have been conceived far from the noise and bustle of Buenos Aires. Its power lies in a literary language that both screams its faith in the potential of literature and exudes literature on its own account. Something that had appeared lost in contemporary literature.» Juan Fernando García, Perfil

 

«Humorous erudition and an imagination as fantastic as it is rigorous,» Mathieu Lindon, Libération
