born in Guantánamo in 1967, is a Cuban author, journalist and essayist. His descriptions of Cuba’s darker side – as in his Havana detective stories and in »Jineteras« (2006; tr: »Whores«, 2008), a dramatic study of Cuban prostitution, brought him international recognition. Following Valle’s repeated criticism of the Castro government, he was barred from re-entering Cuba after a journey to Spain in 2006. Since then he has lived in Berlin as a Writer in Exile sponsored by PEN.
