Leonardo Paduro

Leonardo Paduro (Leonardo Padura Fuentes, b. 1955) is Cuba’s preeminent writer. The author of nine books, he was a finalist for the Book of the Year in Spain, and winner of  Cuba’s National Prize for Literature. His latest is a novel, The Man Who Loved Dogs. Padura has lived his entire life in the home in which he was born, in Mantilla, a decidedly unglamorous barrio of Havana.
