Virgilio Piñera
Birth: Aug. 4, 1912
Death: Oct. 18, 1979

Cuban Writer. He founded the Cuban magazine Orígenes, as well as several others. His work as writer includes short stories such as "Cuentos Fríos," "El Gran Baro," "En el Insomnio" and "Un Fantasma a Posteriori," novels as "La Carne de René," poems such as "Las Furias" or "La Isla en Peso" and stage plays as "Clamor en el Penal," "Dos Viejos Pánicos," "Falsa Alarma" and "Electra Garrigó." He triumphed around the world, but in the 1970s, he was subjected to censorship in Cuba, by his distant stance on the Cuban regime and his homosexuality. First, he was buried in Cementerio de Colón, but later, he was moved to Cárdenas, his city of birth. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
