Personal Quote:

Nothing is true; at the same time everything is true. You see in my part of the world, documents often were falsified by governments. There is almost nothing authentic. If those in power have the right to imagine a history that is false, why then shouldn't novelists attempt with their imaginations to discover the truth.


He is survived by his wife, Gabriela Esquivada; his children- Tomas, Gonzalo, Ezequiel, Paula, Blas, Javier, and Sol-Ana, and many grandchildren. His previous wife, Susana Rotker-Martinez, a former Rutgers University professor, was hit by a truck and killed in 2000. See more »
