Paperback, 132 pages

It is the late 1970s, and Argentina is wracked by the worst excesses of its "Dirty Wars" as thousands are disappeared, tortured and murdered by a dying dictatorship. Luz Goldman, on the other hand, lives in a Buenos Aires bubble of wealth and privilege where such horrors are simply ignored. Luz is precocious yet solipsistic, rich yet disaffected. She and her friends spend their allowances on expensive drugs, their unfettered days having casual sex. Varsavsky's narrator describes this life in stark language that echoes the unsentimental, bored mind of a young teen. First published in English by Ontario Review Press (hardcover, 2000), No One Said a Word was hailed as "an Argentine Catcher in the Rye.
