Edgar Cantero

Edgar Cantero (Barcelona, 1981) is a New York Times-bestselling writer and cartoonist working in three languages. In Catalan, he was the promising author behind the award-winning debut novel "Dormir amb Winona Ryder" (Sleeping with Winona Ryder, 2007) before he lost the respect of the local book scene with his punk dystopian thriller "Vallvi" (2011). In Spanish, he is a long-time contributor to the often-trialed satirical magazine El Jueves. In English he is the author of the gothic mystery "The Supernatural Enhancements" (2014), the horror adventure "Meddling Kids" (2017), and the noir comedy "This Body's Not Big Enough for Both of Us" (2018).

His work, ranging from short stories to screenplays, often features badass female characters, colorful violence, dramatic weather, haunted houses, and ill-timed jokes. He lives in Brooklyn.
