Rolo Diez

Born in 1940, Rolo Diez came late to writing. While a student, he joined an armed revolutionary group resisting the military dictatorship in Argentina. He was captured and, after two years in prison, finally freed in 1977. He took refuge in Europe and lived hand to mouth, surviving on odd jobs. Rolo Diez found some stability and an appetite for writing when he settled in Mexico in the early 80s.
