Fabián Martínez Siccardi



Fabián Martínez Siccardi was born in Argentine Patagonia in 1964 and has wandered and migrated through different cities in Argentina, the United States and Spain. The only place he constantly returned to was his grandparents’ farm in the south, on the shore of Lake Cardiel, where he spent his childhood summers listening to stories about Patagonia.  

He eventually started to write his own stories, some of which were awarded: Memoria fotográfica ("Photographic memory", second prize Hucha de Oro, 2003), El santo invisible ("The Invisible Saints", second prize Ciudad de Zaragoza, 2005), Laika (prize Alberto Lista, 2007), and If then a man (finalist in the award Glimmer Train Press, 2012, co-authored with Arthur Rose South Africa). In 2012 has published the novel for young readers Patagonia iluminada (Illuminated Patagonia), and in 2013 published Bestias afuera (Beasts outside), the 2013 Clarín Novel Prize.
