Journalist and writer
Tenerife, Canary Islands


Andrea Abreu (1995) is a canarian journalist and writer. She has published the poetry book ‘Mujer sin párpados’ (2017) and the fanzine ‘Primavera que sangra’ (Demipage, 2017), about menstrual pain. Her first novel is ‘Panza de burro’ (Barrett, 2020), that was edited by the journalist and writer Sabina Urraca. ‘Panza de burro’ has sold more than 30.000 copies and will be translated in more than nine languages. Furthermore, it was selected as the best Spanish debut in 2021 by the Festival du premier roman de Chambéry. Andrea Abreu is part of the list of best Spanish voices under 35 years by the prestigious magazine ‘Granta’.


During my stay at the residence, I am going to work on my second novel, ‘Pajaritos preñados’. Following the stylistic line of my first novel –‘Panza de burro’–, this second book is based on a hyper-realistic vision of language, through which I intend to generate a simulacrum of orality that seeks to represent the Canarian variant of Spanish. In this new book I develop two parallel stories starring a father and a daughter from a rural area of ​​Tenerife, in the early 2000s.
