Janeiro, Jesús

b. 1974, Ubrique

Matador (‘Jesulín de Ubrique’)

Having taken his alternativa aged 16 in 1990, Jesulín soon gained an unrivalled popularity, not least among his female contemporaries. Less admired by traditional aficionados, Jesulín nevertheless established new records for the number of corridas fought in a season: 153 in 1994 and 161 in 1995.

Janés, Clara

b. 1940, Barcelona

Writer

Although of a Catalan publishing family, Janés writes poetry, novels and essays largely in Spanish. She has lived abroad extensively and translates from several central European languages. Her studies of comparative literature enhance the cosmopolitan, cultured ambience of her writing. Existentialist, anguished and introspective in poetry collections including Las estrellas vencidas (Con-quered Stars) (1964), Límite humano (Human Limitations) (1973) and Libro de alienaciones (Book of Alienations) (1980), she introduces increasingly frank eroticism in Kampa (1986), Eros (1981) and Creciente fértil (Fertile Crescent) (1989). Desintegración (1969) and Los caballos del sueño (Dream Horses) (1989) are major ‘generational’ novels.

Jiménez Lozano, José

b. 1930, Luaga (Avila)

Writer

This journalist, novelist and historian specializing in ecclesiastical topics possesses a uniquely personal accent, a voice of tolerant, dispassionate equili-brium in treating Spain’s spiritual schism (fanaticism versus anticlericalism). As editor of the venerable Valladolid daily, El Norte de Castilla, he followed novelist Miguel Delibes, whom he cites
