Carlos José Pérez Sámano is a natural explorer. The way he sees life is complex, yet candid. He goes for the marrow of a situation, perpetually inquisitive about life’s inner or occult nature.

That’s why his literature is always fresh, while remaining true and profound. And that’s why he’s always able to surprise (himself and his readers!). Through his writing he delves deep into questions of his own identity, examining himself in the light of 'the other', and in nature as well.

Carlos has 4 published books in Mexico and a recent publication with Temple University Press in the anthology Who Will Speak for America?

He writes both in English and Spanish.

His work had been published in 6 literary magazines in Mexico and in the literary magazi

Si en cambio, estás buscando que no sea ficción, sino historia o biografía, entonces te recomendaría el libro "Un Largo Camino hacia la Libertad" que es la biografía de Nelson Mandela, a quien admiro mucho.
