Date of birth

Mar 28, 1955

" Writer and journalist. In his various facets as poet, novelist, reporter and journalist, Llamazares is considered as one of the most solid and coherent writers on the scene today."

Julio Alonso Llamazares was born in Vegamián (León) in 1955 and went on to gain his Law degree, soon after moving to Madrid to persue journalism. He published his first verses at a very young age. His first novel "Luna de Lobos" appeared in 1985 as finalist for the National Narrative Award, and was later converted into a film script. In 1988, he published "La Lluvia Amarilla", one of his most emblematic works and also finalist for the National Narrative Award. In it, he brings readers into the halucinated monologue of the last inhabitant of an abandoned town. His work is characterized by a peculiar narrative voice impregnated with poetic shades evoking a desperation of a certain way of rural life and its landscapes. He regularly collaborates as a literary critic in the written press and other channels of communication.
