Cuban-born Pablo Medina is the author of eighteen books, among them the poetry collections Soledades, The Island Kingdom, The Man Who Wrote on Water, and Calle Habana; the novels Cubop City Blues, The Cigar Roller, The Return of Felix Nogara, and Marks of Birth; and the memoir Exiled Memories: A Cuban Childhood. In 2015 he published a collection of translations from the Spanish of Virgilio Piñera titled The Weight of the Island, and in 2008 he translated (with Mark Statman) García Lorca's Poet in New York. His English version of Alejo Carpentier's seminal novel The Kingdom of This World was published to critical acclaim in 2017. Forthcoming are the novel The Cuban Comedy in 2019 and The Foreigner's Art: Selected and New Poems in 2020. Medina’s work has appeared in various languages and in magazines and periodicals throughout the world. Winner of many awards, including fellowships from the Rockefeller Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation, and others, Medina serves as Distinguished Writer in Residence at Emerson College in Boston.
