Antonio Muñoz Molina

Biography

Antonio Muñoz Molina was born in Úbeda in 1956. In his books, the small town of Mágina is clearly based on Úbeda. After a brief period in Madrid when he got caught up in an anti-Franco conspiracy, he studied art in Granada. After marrying – his wife is the writer Elvira Lindo – he took a job in local government. They have three children. His initial writing consisted of columns for the small circulation Diario de Granada (collected in his first two books). His first novel was Beatus Ille, a biography of the fictitious writer, Jacinto Solana but it was with his second novel, El invierno en Lisboa (Winter In Lisbon), that he achieved success. He is a big jazz fan and references to jazz appear in much of his work.
