Manuel Puig

Place of birth:
General Villegas, Buenos Aires, Argentina:
Juan Manuel Puig Delledonne was an Argentine author, screenwriter and actor. Among his best-known novels are El beso de la mujer araña (Kiss of the Spider Woman, 1976) which was adapted into the film released in 1985, directed by the Argentine-Brazilian director Héctor Babenco; and a Broadway musical in 1993. In the mid-1970s, unhappy with the Peróns’ regime in Argentina and perhaps still seeking a life that would resemble the movies, Puig left his native country. He lived in Mexico, New York, and Brazil, and then again in Mexico, where he died in 1990.
