Renato Cisneros

Renato Cisneros (Lima, 1976) is a well-known journalist, broadcaster, and writer in Peru, where he presents current affairs programs on radio and TV. Having published a number of books of poetry and two novels, in 2015 he stepped back from his career as a broadcaster to fully concentrate on his writing. The Distance Between Us has sold over 35,000 copies in Peru alone and has been lauded in the Peruvian and international press. The Distance Between Us was shortlisted for the Second Mario Vargas Llosa Biannual Award, longlisted for the Prix Médicis (2017), and was the winner of the Prix Transfuge du Meilleur Roman de Littérature Hispanique (2017). A prequel, Dejarás la tierra (You Will Leave Your Land Behind) is already a bestseller in Spain and Latin America and will be published by Charco Press in 2023. Renato Cisneros lives in Madrid.
