In 2007 he received Germany’s prestigious Anna Seghers Prize for, as the jury said, “having an extraordinary poetry and for his work’s being a source of inspiration for the authors of Latin America.” Ocio, the film based on the novel of the same name and directed by Alejandro Lingenti and Juan Villegas, was shown at the Berlin Festival to excellent reviews.

Guadalajara Book Fair (edition 2011) selected him as one of the writers who guarantees the continuation of the great Latinamerican writers of the XXth century.

His works have been translated into several languages.
