Argentines of German descent
Argentine sociologists Forum
Rodolfo Enrique Fogwill (born in Buenos Aires in 1941), who normally goes by just his surname, Fogwill, is an Argentine sociologist, short story writer, and novelist. He is distantly related to the novelist, Charles Langbridge Morgan.
Fogwill was full professor at the University of Buenos Aires, publisher of a legendary poetry book collection, essayist, and specialized columnist in communication subjects, literature and cultural politics. The success of his story "Muchacha punk" (Punk gal), which received the first prize in an important literary contest in 1980, made him leave his job as a businessman, and begin, according to his words, "a plot of misunderstandings and misfortunes" that took him to his present occupation as a writer. Some of his texts have made their way into diverse anthologies published in the United States, Cuba, Mexico, and Spain. He is perhaps particularly notable for his short novel Los pichiciegos (translated as Malvinas Requiem), which was one of the very first narratives to deal with the Falklands War between Argentina and the United Kingdom.
