About the Author
Writer and Psychiatrist Gustavo Eduardo Abrevaya was born in Buenos Aires in 1952. His writing has appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies. He is the author of the novels El Criadero, Los Infernautas, and The Envoy (with Leonardo Killian). In 2020, he was selected as a permanent juror for the noir novel competition of the Black Mountain Bossost Festival in Bossost, Spain. He is currently working on a series of novels about a war between police officers. El Criadero was originally published in Spain, where it won the 2002 José Boris Spivacow Award, and was subsequently published in Argentina and Cuba. Appearing here as The Sanctuary, it marks Abrevaya's first translation into English. Andrea G. Labinger has published numerous translations of Latin American fiction. Gesell Dome, her translation of Guillermo Saccomanno's noir novel Cámara Gesell (Open Letter 2016), won a PEN/Heim Translation Award and was long-listed for the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses' Firecracker Award. She also translated Saccomanno's 77 (Open Letter 2019). She previously translated Patricia Ratto's Proceed With Caution (2021) for Schaffner Press.
