He has published Historia argentina, Vidas de santos, Trabajos manuales, Esperanto, La velocidad de las cosas, Mantra and Jardines de Kensington and El fondo del cielo. They have been translated into many languages.
Mantra, a portrait of Mexico City ca. 2000, reveals a deep influence of Science Fiction novels (Philip K. Dick in particular), movies (Stanley Kubrick) and TV shows (The Twilight Zone). His latest novel, Kensington Gardens, has recently been translated to English by Natasha Wimmer. According to Jonathan Lethem, "he's a kaleidoscopic, open-hearted, shamelessly polymathic storyteller, the kind who brings a blast of oxygen into the room."
Since 1999, Fresán has lived and worked in Barcelona, Spain.
He was a close friend of the late Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño.
