Portrait of Juan Rulfo

Juan Rulfo (1917–1986) was one of Mexico’s most important twentieth-century writers. Taciturn in his dealings with others and frugal in his literature, he published only two books: the novel Pedro Páramo (1955) and the collection of stories El llano en llamas (1953), which includes the story in AGNI 71 translated by Ilan Stavans.

AGNI has published the following work:
