Pablo was born 1966 and is widely considered one of Argentina’s most interesting new authors. Raised in Greater Buenos Aires, the literary autodidact and musician left school at an early age. After receiving numerous awards for his poetry, his first book of poems, “Lo pasado pisado,” was published in 1997. In 2004 he published his first novel, “El origen de la tristeza” (The Origin of Sadness). This dark tale on the life of young Gabriel in an outlying village was translated into German, French, and Portuguese. For his volume of short stories, “Cuando lo peor haya pasado,” Ramos was awarded two of the most prestigious literary prizes in Argentina and Cuba. His novel, “La ley de la ferocidad,” returns to the fate of his hero Gabriel: now an adult drowning in despair following his father’s death, he literally rescues himself through writing. Ramos’s books appear throughout the Hispanic world, in Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Columbia, Venezuela, and Spain. He is also a screenwriter.
