The Argentinian journalist and novelist Mariana Enríquez is considered to be one of the most original and important writers of her generation. She has published two novels and two collections of short stories, and her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Granta and McSweeney’s. Nuestra parte de noche was crowned with the Premio Herralde de Novela, the Premio Kelvin 505 and the prestigious Premio de la Crítica. The Dutch translation will be published by De Bezige Bij in September 2021. The story plays out against the background of the military dictatorship in Argentina in the 1970s, its Dirty War and the people ‘disappeared’ by the regime. It is a captivating novel about fathers and sons, class differences and conflict, and the weight of a horrific legacy.
