manuscript page by maria luisa puga

“How does one become a writer, and how does she go about building a body of creative work?”* These are questions that author Irma López seeks to answer in her latest publication, a biography of the late Mexican writer María Luisa Puga (1944–2004) titled Extraño no-amor el tuyo: María Luisa Puga, historia de una pasión.   

This is the second book on Puga by López, a professor of Spanish and interim dean at Western Michigan University.

The diaries make up the bulk of the María Luisa Puga Papers at the Benson Latin American Collection.
