"Because to write, one must truly suffer." -- Juan Rulfo
Juan Rulfo (16 May 1917 – 7 January 1986) was a Mexican author and photographer. One of Latin America's most esteemed authors, Rulfo's reputation rests on two slim books, the novel Pedro Páramo (1955), and El Llano en llamas (1953). 15 of these 17 short stories have been translated into English and published in The Burning Plain and Other Stories), a collection of short stories that includes his admired tale "¡Diles que no me maten!" ("Tell Them Not to Kill Me!"). He and Jorge Luis Borges were named the most important Spanish-language writers of the 20th century in a poll conducted by Editorial Alfaguara and reported in Frank Janney, ed., Inframundo: The Mexico of Juan Rulfo (New York: Persea Books, 1984).
