María Sonia Cristoff (born 1965) is an Argentine writer. She was born in Trelew but since the early 1980s has been based in Buenos Aires. She writes both fiction and non fiction. Some of her usual topics are cultural practices such as walking and travelling, the relationship between humans and animals, isolation, life in contemporary metropolis. She is the author of Falsa calma [A False Calm, 2005], a journey through ghost towns in Patagonia; Desubicados [Misfits, 2006], a novella taking place in a single day at the Buenos Aires zoo; and the novel Bajo influencia [Under the Influence, 2010]. The line between the fictional and the documentary is somehow blurred in her writing. Her books as an editor (Patagonia, Idea crónica and Pasaje a Oriente) are related to the same subjects as her narrative. She teaches creative writing at Centro Ricardo Rojas (Universidad de Buenos Aires) and has participated as a writer in residency in Leipzig, Germany, and at the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa. Her literary pieces and criticism have been published in different newspapers and magazines from her country and abroad, and her narrative and essays have been included in different collective volumes.
