Gonzalo MillÃ¡n, (1947 Santiago de Chile – 2006 Santiago de Chile), Chilean poet, author of many books, editor of anthologies, translator, visual artist (his Self Portrait from Memory was published last year) died this past weekend aged 59. Exiled in Canada during the Pinochet years he there co-founded Ediciones Cordillera, devoted mainly to publishing the work of Chilean writers in Canada and the journal El espÃritu del valle. I assume Saturday as the day of his death, and Santiago the place, as the news came from Kurt Folch M there, overnight, and he referred to “yesterday”.
NOTE LATER: saturday morning/dawn (1:30 a.m)
