Carlos José Pérez Sámano is a natural explorer. The way he sees life is complex, yet candid. He goes for the marrow of a situation, perpetually inquisitive about life’s inner or occult nature.
That’s why his literature is always fresh, while remaining true and profound. And that’s why he’s always able to surprise (himself and his readers!). Through his writing he delves deep into questions of his own identity, examining himself in the light of 'the other', and in nature as well.
Carlos has 4 published books in Mexico and a forthcoming publication with Temple University Press in the anthology Who Will Speak for America? He writes both in English and Spanish. His work had been published in 6 literary magazines in Mexico and will be published in the literary magazines Rio Grande Review, The City Key and Fredericksburg Literary and Art Review in the US.
Carlos has been building a loyal community that follows him on adventures in living with different tribes in Africa, as he discovers America on a 4-thousand-mile-long road trip, through the kaleidoscopic fiction of his short stories as well as his raw and brutal poetry. He keeps it always new, inventive, authentic.
Carlos is an author that will stand the test of time because of his ability to reach readers through genuine observations of himself and of the discoveries he’s made in the world. Through his literature, his readers are transported along for the journey, making discoveries entirely of their own along the way.
He is the Executive Director of the Mexican Global Network, Chapter Philadelphia, and member of the American-Mexican Association, USA.
Carlos José Pérez Sámano was born in Mexico City in 1985. He is currently studying MFA in Creative Writing and MA in Publishing.
