Luis Sepúlveda is Chilean, has traveled extensively through Latin America and Europe and lives in Spain. He is a major writer in today's world literature scene. He is also a politically and socially committed journalist and film director.
Open Books first published Sepúlveda's classic The Old Man Who Read Love Stories in 2001, along with Nombre de torero and Diario de un killer sentimental. Twelve other novels and collections of stories were published since then, including his novel La sombra de lo que fuimos.
Sepulveda's stories are full of magnificent losers (because victory is shallow, unlike failure and loss) that are sure to take the reader on an eye-opening journey. Open Books will continue to introduce further works of this great Latin American storyteller who is also, along with Roberto Bolaño, one of the most well-known witnesses of 20th Century Chile's traumatic history.
