"One of the greatest Argentinean writers and one of the greatest writers of Latin America." — Roberto Bolaño
Nest in the Bones is the first comprehensive volume of Benedetto's stories available in English.
He wrote with constant poetic innovation.
From his youth in Argentina to his exile in Spain after enduring imprisonment and torture under the military dictatorship during the so-called “dirty war” to his return in the 1980s, Benedetto's stories move effortlessly, examining civilization’s subtle but violent imprint on human consciousness
