Author Information

Manuel Rivas was born in Coruna, Galicia, in 1957. He graduated in Media Studies at the Complutense University of Madrid and then worked as a journalist in the press, radio and television. As an author, he is best known for his seven novels and six collections of short stories.

He is also a highly-regarded poet and essayist. All of his literary work is written in Galician. An edition of Rivas' poetry in Jonathan Dunne's English translation, From Unknown to Unknown (2009), brought together eighty of his poems, drawn from the collected edition published in Galician as Do desconecido ao desconecido in 2003.

Some of his work has been filmed in Spain: La lengua de las mariposas (Butterfly's Tongue), based on 3 interwoven stories contained in his collection Que me queres, amor? (Vermeer's Milkmaid in the English language edition), directed by Jose Luis Cuerda, and El lapiz del carpintero (The Carpenter's Pencil), directed by Anton Reixa.
