Griselda Gambaro (born July 28, 1928) is an Argentine playwright, whose works often concern the political violence in her home country that would develop into the Dirty War. One recurring theme is the desaparecidos and the attempts to recover their bodies and memorialize them. Gambaro is Argentina's most celebrated playwright, and she was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1982, as well as many other prizes.
"Griselda Gambaro is, without doubt, one of the most innovative and
powerful writers in the world today."
--Diana Taylor, Dartmouth College
"She is not only one of the major literary figures of contemporary Argentina but indeed of all Latin America."
--George Woodyard, University of Kansas
