Antonio Di Benedetto (1922, Mendoza - 1986, Buenos Aires) was an Argentine journalist and writer of Italian descent. He began to study law but later dedicated himself to journalism, becoming deputy director of the newspaper Los Andes. Di Benedetto began to write in his adolescence and came to occupy an outstanding place in contemporary Argentine narrative. Di Benedetto published his first book in 1953, Animal World, a volume of stories. Later he wrote five novels, the most famous of which is Zama. He published El Silenciero in 1964 and Los Suicidas in 1969. During the last civil-military dictatorship, he was persecuted, imprisoned, and tortured, and finally released on September 4, 1977. He left the country and went into exile in Europe, returning to Argentina in 1984.
