~official BIO

YARA RODRIGUES FOWLER grew up in South London, where she is still based. She’s written for The New York Times, BBC Brasil, Guardian, Vogue, Skin Deep, Litro, and other publications. She was named one of The Observer’s ‘hottest-tipped’ debut novelists of 2019, and was chosen as one of this year’s most exciting debut novelists by Grazia, Stylist, Independent, Cosmo and Elle. 

Her first novel Stubborn Archivist was published in the UK in February 2019 (Fleet, Little Brown) and will be published in the US in July by HMH. 

Stubborn Archivist was called ‘stunning’ by Olivia Laing, ‘visceral and elegant’ by Claire-Louise Bennett and ‘breathtakingly written’ by Nikesh Shukla. It was recently longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize for debut novels.

Yara’s a trustee of Latin American Women’s Aid, an organisation that runs the only two refuges in Europe for and by Latin American women. 

She’s writing her second novel now, for which she’s received the John C Lawrence Award from the Society of Authors.
