Ana Maria Matute, Spanish Novelist, Dies Aged 88

Posted at 8:11AM Thursday 26 Jun 2014

Award-winning Spanish novelist Ana Maria Matute has died at the age of 88.

The author - who was regarded as one of Spain's greatest post-Civil War writers - died of a heart attack in Barcelona, her son told Reuters.

Matute had won almost all of Spain's major literary awards, including the Cervantes Prize, the Spanish-speaking world's highest literary honour.

Her best-known works include Los Abel (The Abels) and Los Soldados Lloran de Noche (Soldiers Cry By Night).
