Biography

The New York Times described Guadalupe Nettel’s acclaimed English-language debut, ‘Natural Histories,’ as “five flawless stories.” A Bogotá 39 author and Granta “Best Untranslated Writer,” Nettel has received numerous prestigious awards, including the Gilberto Owen National Literature Prize, the Antonin Artaud Prize, the Ribera del Duero Short Fiction Award, and the Anna Seghers Prize. She was short-listed for the Neustadt Prize, and most recently, won the 2014 Herralde Novel Prize. ‘The Body Where I Was Born,’ a novel of an unconventional childhood in the ’70s, is her first novel to appear in English. Nick Flynn called it “utterly compelling …. [Nettel] has brilliantly found a form to contain the multitudes of what one body can hold.” She lives and works in Mexico City.
