Biography:

Miguel Angel Asturias was awarded the 1967 Nobel Prize for Literature. Born in Guatemala in 1899, he served in his country's diplomatic service and is now Guatemalia's Ambassador to France. During the 1950s he was forced into exile for eight years because of his political convictions. Asturias' major novels are strong indictments of economic, social, and political privilege. As a stylist and innovator, Asturias has been compared to Faulkner and Joyce.
