She was born in Moreno, Province of Buenos Aires, in 1936 and died in the City of Buenos Aires in 2018. Unknown for much of her life, Uhart's first publications were in small publishing houses, but she gained recognition when her Relatos reunidos was published in 2010 and her books were translated into other languages some time later.
She studied Philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires, after graduating as a rural teacher. She worked as a teacher at primary, secondary and university levels at the very same University of Buenos Aires and at the National University of Lomas de Zamora, while she began to teach literary workshops. She also collaborated with the cultural supplement of the newspaper El País, of Montevideo.
In 2017 she won the Manuel Rojas Ibero-American Prize for Narrative, among other awards.
Rodolfo Fogwill even said of her she was "the best Argentine writer".
Many young writers attended her literary workshops. Fortunately, writer Liliana Villanueva -who was Uhart's disciple for ten years- compiled many of those moments in her book Las clases de Hebe Uhart, in 2015. Among several issues, the author left a path of exploration to reflect on language, the construction of characters, the story, the chronicle, the interior monologue, humor and, above all, the importance of observation.
Bouzas and Muslip (disciples and executors of the author) point out, among other qualities, Uhart's absolute ear for popular voices. She herself said: “All art is the art of listening. The more I observe, the more I get out of my prejudice. It is difficult to look at reality without postponing judgment, but in order to write it is necessary to do so".
