A Spanish writer born in Madrid in 1967, he worked in a variety of different places before starting to publish stories in the underground magazine “El canto de la tripulación”. He published his first book, “Lo peor de todo”, in 1992. “Héroes”, 1993, was a literary experiment for which he won the El Sitio de Bilbao Book Prize. “Días extraños” in 1994 and especially “Caídos del cielo”, 1995, turned him into a highly topical figure as representative of what was called the Generation X, a label that he has been trying to shake off, given that his literature transcends simple generational definition.

In 1997 he decided to switch to directing and adapted his own novel “Caídos del cielo” under the title of La pistola de mi hermano, screened at the Cannes Film Festival. His last two novels, “Tokio ya no nos quiere” (1999) and “Trífero” (2000), display the maturity of Ray Loriga’s writing. His latest work is the script for El séptimo día, a film directed by Carlos Saura about the tragedy of Puerto Hurraco, which took place in 1990.
