About me

Short listed in 2014 for the Luke Bitmead Bursary Prize, for best unpublished novel of the year,José Toledo was born in Havana and has since lived in several countries of Latin America, Europe and Africa amassing experiences and stories.  He has traveled extensively throughout those continents and the rest of the world, not merely as a tourist but more like a dedicated explorer, taking his time to observe, learn, cherish, fall in love, fall out of love, get into trouble, get out of trouble… and write about it all.
