Elia Barcelo

Elia Barcelo was born in Alicante in 1957 and teaches Spanish Language and Literature at the University of Innsbruck. She has been awarded many prizes for her works of science fiction, but with Heart of Tango (MacLehose Press, 2010) she is fast gaining the wider readership that her fiction richly deserves. David Frye's translations include The Mangy Parrot by Jose Joaquin Fernandez de Lizardi, and Thine Is the Kingdom (1999) and Distant Palaces (2004) by Cuban novelist Abilio Estevez.
