Paula Varsavsky author's photo

Paula Varsavsky is a journalist, novelist and short story writer. She is the author of two novels, Nadie alzaba la voz (Emecé, 1994) and El resto de su vida (Mondadori, 2007), both of which are taught at several universities in Argentina, the United States, and Germany. Nadie alzaba la voz was translated into English by Anne McLean as No One Said a Word and first published in hardcover by Ontario Review Press (2000). She is also the author of a collection of short stories, El retrato (soon to be Published by Editorial Nueva Generación). Her short stories have been published in journals and anthologies, such as Lamujerdemivida, Translation, World Literature Today, Hostos Review, Revista Cultural Avatares and In Our Own Words: A Generation Defining Itself. Currently, she is working on her third novel to be published under the title Una clásica historia de política y poder.

Varsavsky is the daughter of noted Argentinian astrophysicist, Dr. Carlos Vasavsky. After the murder of a family member during the "Dirty Wars" in Argentina, the Varsavsky family moved to New York in 1977. No One Said a Word is set during this same time period, but feels almost apolitical, accurately reflecting the vacuous lives of its affluent adolescent narrator and her peers. Critics have called No One Said a Word "the Argentinian Catcher in the Rye."
