Adam Feinstein is a writer, journalist, poet, and translator. His biography, Pablo Neruda: A Passion for Life, was first published by Bloomsbury in 2004 to worldwide acclaim from, among others, Harold Pinter and Andrew Motion. It is being reissued by Bloomsbury in 2013 in an updated edition, which will include the exhumation of Neruda’s body on April 8 this year in an attempt to investigate claims that the poet may have been poisoned. Feinstein has translated from the work of many Spanish and Latin American poets, including Federico García Lorca and Mario Benedetti. He writes on Spanish and Latin American cultural and political affairs, as well as autism, for many publications around the world and also broadcasts on these subjects for the BBC.  His latest book—his translations from Neruda’s Canto General, illustrated with original color prints by the Brazilian artist Ana Maria Pacheco—will be published in 2013. He is currently working on a collection of translations from the Spanish poet Félix Grande and a book about cultural policy in Cuba since the Revolution.
