Carlos Yushimito del Valle studied Latin American Literature at the National University of San Marcos where he graduated in 2002. Two years later he published his first short stories collection, El Mago (The Magician), and in 2006 his second book, Las Islas (Islands), was warmly received by the critics. Since then, his stories have appeared in several anthologies of short stories in Peru and abroad. In 2010 he was considered by the British literary magazine Granta as one of the twenty two best writers in Spanish Language under 35 years, along with authors like Santiago Roncagliolo, Andres Neuman and Alejandro Zambra. He has been invited, among others, to Quito Book Fair, Santiago de Chile, La Paz, Guadalajara, Miami and Bogotá, Colombia International Book Fairs, to the First International Festival of Young Writers in La Habana, Cuba and to several U.S. Universities, including New York University, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Tulane University, Brandeis University, San Jose State University, California, Georgetown University, Cornell University and University of California, Berkeley.
