Almudena Sánchez (Andratx, Mallorca, 1985) studied Journalism and took a Master’s degree in Creative Writing. La acústica de los iglús (Caballo de Troya, 2016) was her first book of short stories, and it is currently in its eighth edition and has also been published in Argentina (Odelia Editora, 2018). Her debut also led to her being shortlisted for the Setenil Prize and was picked as a favourite by the New Spanish Books platform. Some of the stories have been translated into English and published in the magazine Two Lines. In 2013 her work was included in Bajo 30, antología de nuevos narradores españoles (Salto de Página) and in 2019 she was listed as one of the ten best thirtysomething Spanish writers by AECID. Fármaco (Penguin Random House, 2021) is her first novel.
