Born in Lima in 1977, Carlos Yushimito del Valle is regarded as one of the
most original voices to emerge in Latin American literature in recent years.
In 2010, Granta Magazine featured him among "twenty-two literary stars of
the future" in Spain and Latin America, and in 2008 Casa de las Américas/
Centro Onelio Cardoso in Cuba selected him as one of the best writers of a
rising generation. Yushimito has published five short-story collections: El
mago (2004), Las islas (2006), Equis (2009), Lecciones para un niño que
llega tarde (2011) and Los bosques tienen sus propias puertas (2013). His
fiction has been translated into English, French, Italian, and Portuguese.
This talk is in English and open to the public.
