Summary This portrait of Luis Sepúlveda plunges us into Latin America, against a background of male friendships and travels from the Amazon to Patagonia, and from Northern Europe to Andalusia. Gaining international fame with his first novel, The Old Man Who Read Love Stories, Sepúlveda's oeuvre is marked by political and ecological commitment as well as by the dictatorial repression of the 1970s, combined with a love of travel and interest in indigenous peoples. Imprisoned for two years under Pinochet, he wandered through South America before moving to Hamburg and eventually settling in Gijon, Northern Spain.
