Sabina Berman Goldberg (Mexico City, August 21, 1955) is a writer and journalist. Considered to be Mexico's most critically and commercially successful contemporary playwright, Berman is one of the most prolific living writers in the Spanish language. Her work deals mainly with issues related to diversity and its obstacles. Her style tends toward humor and language, or the need to move beyond the limits of language. She is a four-time winner of the National Playwriting Award in Mexico (Premio Nacional de Dramaturgia Juan Ruiz Alarcón) and has twice won the National Journalism Award (Premio Nacional de Periodismo). Her plays have been staged in Canada, North America, Latin America, and Europe. Her novel, Me (La mujer que buceó en el corazón del mundo) has been translated into 11 languages and published in over 33 countries, including Spain, France, the United States, England, and Israel.
"In her plays, there are certain constants worthy of note: a taste for humor; a mistrust of official discourse and indeed, of all discourse in general; the need to surpass both sexual limits and those that apply to literary genres."
