Jaime Sáenz

Author, Spanish
Jaime Sáenz (1921 – 1986) is considered the preeminent literary voice of twentieth century Bolivia. The author of numerous books, Sáenz also conducted "Los talleres krupp," late-night salons that precipitated a new generation of Bolivian writers. Sáenz was famously nocturnal, death-obsessed, and bisexual. (Photo credit: Javier Molina Barrios)
