Born Eliseo Alberto de Diego Garcia Marruz, he was the recipient of the Premio Alfaguara de Novela, an international Spanish-language literary award in 1998 for the melancholic novel 'Caracol Beach'.

He also taught at film schools in Cuba, Mexico, and the United States. His father, Eliseo Diego, was one of Cuba's best-known poets and was a member of one of Cubas most famous families which included writers and musicians.
