Snippet: Cervantes prize 2014 to Juan Goytisolo

Juan Goytisolo (Barcelona, 1931; Wikipedia) is the 2014 Cervantes prize winner.

According to the jury Goytisolo was chosen for “his investigative capacity in language and complex stylish propositions, developed in different literary genres; for his willingness to integrate the two shores, the heterodox Spanish tradition and his permanent commitment to intercultural dialogue.” (from the official press release by the Spanish ministry of culture)

El País offers this article in English.

Amazon.com lists nine titles by Goytisolo as available in English.
