GARZO, Gustavo Martin

Spanish author Gustavo Martín Garzo, the winner of the 1994 National Narrative Prize for “El lenguaje de las fuentes,” had already made a name for himself in literary circles with three previous novels, as well as for his literary criticism and contributions to the magazine Un Ángel Más.

A psychologist by profession, he gained further recognition and popularity by winning the prestigious Nadal Prize for his novel “Las historias de Marta y Fernando.” Martín Garzo was born in 1948 in Valladolid and brought up in a Catholic home, which provided him with a knowledge of religious symbols that he has converted into literary material.
