Jorge Eduardo Benavidas (1964, Arequipa, Peru) is a Peruvian writer from the late XX century and beginnings of the XXI century. His dramas revolve around Urban Realism (Based on the difficult years in Lima during late 80’s, time when his career as a writer began and made an impact with his novel) and journeys to fantastic topics, remarking the trace of Julio Cortazar, recognized by the same author. His piece of literature is influenced by the technique of a fellow Peruvian writer, Mario Vargas Llosa.
