Fernando Aramburu (San Sebastián, 1959) is a Spanish writer.[1]

He graduated in Spanish Philology and has been living and working as a lecturer in Spanish language in Germany since 1985. His 2006 novel Fuegos con limón described his youthful experiences in Grupo CLOC de Arte y Desarte, a surrealist group which published a magazine between 1978 and 1981.[2] He won the Premio Tusquets de Novela in 2011 for his novel Años lentos,[3] and the Premio Biblioteca Breve in 2015 for Ávidas pretensiones.[4] He is considered among the most important living Spanish writers, alongside novelists like Arturo Pérez-Reverte, Andrés Pascual and Eduardo Mendoza, all of them included in the so-called Spanish New Narrative.[5]
