Fernando Sánchez Dragó dies

The writer Fernando Sánchez Dragó has died this morning of a heart attack at the age of 86 at his home in Castilfrío de la Sierra (Soria), family sources have informed the EFE news agency.

Born in 1936 in Madrid, he was the author of more than forty books including essays and novels, and had achieved notable popularity for having presented several television programs related to culture, and also for his public interventions, usually controversial, referring to issues such as politics, customs or sexuality, among others. In fact, he was a regular contributor to the media.

With a degree in Romance Philology and Modern Languages, Sánchez Dragó was a professor of Spanish Language, Literature and History at universities in Japan, Senegal, Morocco and Kenya. His literary and cultural activity has been awarded several times. He won the 1979 National Essay Award with the monumental four-volume work Gargoris and Habidis. A magical history of Spain.

Just two hours before the tragic news was released, the writer shared a greeting on his social networks:

In a recent intervention, he declared his literary vocation: “Everything I have done in life has been to write,” he maintained.
