Author: Alfredo Zaldivar

Alfredo Zaldívar, born in Sojo Tres, Holguín, Cuba in 1956, has lived in Matanzas since 1973. In 1985 he founded the world-renowned handmade book collective Ediciones Vigía, where he worked for fifteen years. He now heads Ediciones Matanzas. Zaldívar's own poetry combines myth and everyday experience, indignation and metaphor, cultural references that define his time, humor and occasional passages of powerful homoeroticism. In 2012 he was awarded Cuba's National Editors Prize and holds the high Honor of Distinction in National Culture, among other awards. Zaldívar's books include Concilio de las aguas (1989), La vida en ciernes (2002), Esperando a viernes (2009), Rasgado con las manos (2015), and Cuchillos en el aire / Knives in the Air (2015). The Cuban edition of TRILLOS / PRECIPIOS / CONCURRENCIAS - PATHWAYS / PRECIPICES / SPECTATORS won the José Jacinto Milanés Bicentenary Extraordinary Poetry Prize in 2014.
