Leonardo Padura

The 2012 winner of Cuba’s National Prize for Literature, Leonardo Padura is perhaps best known for his Havana Quartet detective series. Writing from the house where he was born, near Havana, Padura has authored several novels as well as short fiction and essays. The English translation of El hombre que amaba a los perros (The Man Who Loved Dogs), forthcoming in December, will be Padura’s first U.S. publication.
