Manuel Mujica Lainez


Manuel Mujica Lainez (11 September 1910 - 21 April 1984) was an Argentine fiction writer and art critic.

Mujica Lainez was born in Buenos Aires.

His parents belonged to old and aristocratic families, being descended from the founder of the city, Juan de Garay, as well as from notable men of letters of 19th century Argentina, such as Florencio Varela and Miguel Cane. As was traditional at the time, the family spent protracted periods in Paris and London so that Manuel, known proverbially and famously as Manucho, could become proficient in French and English. He completed his formal education at the Colegio Nacional de San Isidro, later dropping out of Law School.
