More About Sergio Ramirez

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Sergio Ramirez was born in Masatepe, Nicaragua in 1942. His first book was published in 1963; the following year he earned a law degree at the University of Nicaragua. After a lengthy voluntary exile in Costa Rica and Germany -during which he continued to write works of fiction and nonfiction - he became active as the leader of the Group of Twelve, consisting of intellectuals, businessman and priests united against the Somoza regime. With the triumph of the Sandinista Revolution in 1979, he became part of the Junta of the Government of National Reconstruction, where he presided over the National Council of Education. He was elected vice-president of Nicaragua in 1984, an office he held until 1990. He continued to serve as the leader of the Sandinista block in the National Assembly until 1995, when he founded the Movement for Sandinista Renovation (MRS) because of his differences with Daniel Ortega. In 1996 he retired from politics. Sergio Ramirez is the author of thirty books, only a handful of which have been translated into English. He has received Spain's Dashiel Hammet Award, France's Laure Bataillon Award, Cuba's Jose Maria Arguedas Latinamerican Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Alfaguara International Novel Award. A Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres of France, and a doctor honoris causa of Blaise Pascal University (France), he is also recipient of the International Prize for Human Rights awarded by the Bruno Kreisky Foundation, and the Order of Merit of the Federal Government of Germany. He will hold the Robert Kennedy Professorship in Latin American Studies at Harvard University in 2009. His recent book include Catallina y Catalina (2001), Sombras nada mas (2002), Mil y una muertes (2004), and El Reino Animal.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mil y una Muertes (Spanish Edition)?

¿Cuentos quieres, niña bella?  May 2, 2005
Cinco estrellas. Esta prosa tan sabrosa deja en los labios la miel, y a más de un nicaragüense le picará en el corazón. Después de leer esta novela me siento más nica y más universal. La novela nos hace agua la boca al darnos datos históricos tan curiosos (y algún que otro chisme sabrosón) que nos obliga a inquirir más e indagar en los los libros de historia para aclarar dudas o confirmar datos. Sí, esta novela es histórica simplemente porque es toda historia. Mentira, verdad? No seamos ilusos. Recordemos que, alguna o muchas veces, un Robert Graves, una Mary Renault y hasta un Menéndez Pidal pueden exagerar, embellecer, e incluso falsificar la "verdad" o lo que llamamos "Historia." No le vamos a negar a Sergio Ramírez el derecho que tiene a esta licencia poética. Se lo ha ganado a pulso con el arte erudito de su ingenio, con su convicción y con acción. Su propio personaje de Castellón ya lo ha inmortalizado en su cámara obscura con su destello de luz. El mismo Sergio Ramírez --aún en vida-- es ya parte de nuestra historia política y literaria.
