About the Author
Jose Donoso was a Chilean writer. While he lived most of his life in Chile, he also spent many years in self-imposed exile in Mexico, the United States (Iowa), and Spain. After 1973 he claimed his exile was also a form of protest against the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. He returned to Chile in 1981 and lived there until his death.

Hardie St. Martin is a well-known editor and translator of Spanish poetry and prose. His works of translation include Memoirs by Pablo Neruda, the Garden Next Door by Jose Denoso, and Tierra del Fuego: An Historical Novel by Sylvia Iparraguirre.
