Born in Cuba in the 1930s, Eduardo Manet took French nationality in 1979. Passionate about writing from the age of 15, he later developed a strong interest in theatre, cinema and politics.
For a long while he was part of the Cuban Revolutionary movement, which took him into a number of unlikely places, from the Havana High School to New York, from militant theatre to the suites of the Ritz. 1968 marked the discovery of France (its language, theatre and music) which became his home as well as his land of exile and freedom.
Eduardo Manet is now President of the Permanent Council of Writers.
