Juan Filloy


Juan Filloy was born in Córdoba in 1894. He graduated from the University of Córdoba. After working as a caricaturist, he became a lawyer. His works, many of which have seven letter titles, and which include novels, drama, articles, stories, history and poetry, were relatively unknown, even in Argentina, till recent years. They tend to be parodies, language games, witty. Indeed, they might be considered post-modern before there was post-modern. He went for thirty years without publishing but resumed in his seventies. He died in 2000, aged 106.
