About the Author: Antonio Muñoz Molina

Antonio Muñoz Molina is a Spanish writer and, since 8 June 1995, a full member of the Royal Spanish Academy. He currently resides in New York City, United States. In 2004-2005 he served as the director of the Instituto Cervantes of New York.
He was born in the town of Úbeda in Jaén province.
He studied art history at the University of Granada and journalism in Madrid. He began writing in the 1980s and his first published book, El Robinsón urbano, a collection of his journalistic work, was published in 1984. His columns have regularly appeared in El País and Die Welt.
His first novel, Beatus ille, appeared in 1986. It features the imaginary city of Mágina — a re-creation of his Andalusian birthplace — which would reappear in some his later works.
In 1987 Muñoz Molina was awarded Spain's National Narrative Prize for El invierno en Lisboa (translated as Winter in Lisbon), a homage to the genres of film noir and jazz music. His El jinete polaco received the Planeta Prize in 1991 and, again, the National Narrative Prize in 1992.
His other novels include Beltenebros (1989), a story of love and political intrigue in post-Civil War Madrid, Los misterios de Madrid (1992), and El dueño del secreto (1994).
Margaret Sayers Peden's English-language translation of Muñoz Molina's novel Sepharad won the PEN/Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize in 2004. He won the Jerusalem Prize in 2013.
He is married to Spanish author and journalist, Elvira Lindo.

Un Madrid a principios de los noventa, convertido en un escenario a la vez muy preciso y fantasmagórico. Una peripecia detectivesca en la que Muñoz Molina otorga un papel preponderante a un registro irónico que convierte a este relato de aventuras y desventuras en una versión actual del Cándido de Voltaire. La misteriosa desaparición del Santo Cristo de la Greña lleva a Lorenzo Quesada a la capital española, en donde se suceden las historias más disparatadas, con los más variopintos personajes y situaciones de lo más descabellado. La conjunción de enérgica inventiva expresiva y honda percepción humana de esta obra personal llena de coherencia, confirmó en Muñoz Molina a uno de nuestros principales escritores.
