Arturo D. Hernï¿½ndez is one of Peru's most famous and honored authors. Born in the Amazon in 1903, he set all of his novels in his native country. Hernï¿½ndez enjoyed a period of international acclaim in the 1950s after his first novel, Sangama, was translated into French and German. His second novel, Selva Trï¿½gica, won the Ricardo Palma National Prize as the best novel in Peru in 1954, and in 1956 it was published in Paris. It was followed by Bubinzana: The Magic Song of the Jungle, published in 1960, the most mystical of his novels. In 1969, Hernï¿½ndez published his Tangarana and Other Tales, his final work. This is a collection of short stories mostly set in the background of the Amazon jungle and includes a revised version of his third novel Bubinzana.
