Mallo is a self-taught writer, unredeemed and proud of it. To his
fortune, God abandoned him as a child so he began writing because
it was the only thing he did well at school. He had many different
jobs, some not quite legal and others downright subversive but was
never caught. He devotes all his honesty to his writing. He dedicates
a good part of his time to spread the idea that it is necessary to
improve the quality and education of criminals given that too often
it is they who govern us while prisons are overcrowded with fools
and paupers. His motto: “Better criminals for a better world”. Works,
lives and struggles in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After longtime as
playwright and screenwriter he published five noveles: Needle in the
Haystack, Sweet Money, The Reliquary, The History of Water, and Men
done you wrong.
