Julieta Campos was born in Havana, Cuba in 1932. After completing undergraduate studies at the University of Havana in 1952, she spent a year on scholarship at the Sorbonne in Paris and received a certificate in contemporary French literature. She returned to Cuba and shortly thereafter emigrated to Mexico.

In the next years she collaborated in magazines, including Octavio Paz's Plural, editing the important literary journal Revista de la Universidad de Mexico, and translated numerous works of fiction and nonfiction into Spanish. In 1978 she was elected president of the P.E.N. Club of Mexico.

Her novels include Death by Water, A Redhead Named Sabina (for which she won the Xavier Villaurrutia Prize in 1976), Celina or the Cats, and Fear of Losing Eurydice. Collections of criticism have been published as The Mirror's Eye, The Novel's Function, and The Persistent Legacy.
