Collection Creator Biography:

Correa, Miguel, 1956-

Miguel Correa (b. 1956) is a Cuban novelist, poet, and translator who emigrated from Cuba in 1980. He arrived as one of the "Marielitos," those Cubans who arrived on the coast of Florida as part of a boatlift which embarked from Mariel, Cuba. The Mariel boatlift was a large and rapid exodus of Cubans who left the country when the Cuban goverment allowed and, in some cases, encouraged Cubans to emigrate. Correa's first novel, Al norte del infierno (1983) won the Jesus Castellanos Prize for the Novel during the 1983 Miami Festival of the Arts Commemorating the Third Anniversary of Mariel. His novel Fragmentos del discurso humano was published in 2000, thirteen years after being written. He has also written two other unpublished works, "La arboleda de Dionisio" (novel) and "La enormidad del hacha" (poetry).
