Juan Rulfo

Juan Rulfo

From WikiPedia: “Juan Rulfo (16 May 1917 – 7 January 1986) was a Mexican writer, screenwriter and photographer. One of Latin America’s most esteemed authors, Rulfo’s reputation rests on two slim books, the novel Pedro Páramo (1955), and El Llano en llamas (1953), a collection of short stories. Fifteen of these seventeen short stories have been translated into English and published as The Burning Plain and Other Stories. This collection, includes his admired tale “¡Diles que no me maten!” (“Tell Them Not to Kill Me!”).”
