Italian writer, a novelist who became famous at the age of 60. In 1981 he was suddenly commercially viable, assuming European stature and becoming a point of reference, not only for literature but for his style.

Bufalino had, so to speak, two lives. Up to the time of his sudden fame, he led the life of a cultivated professor at a school, a scholarly man and a translator. His last novel was, with some irony, a mystery, as his sudden and violent death was not without suspicion.

Married from 15 December 1982, he was visiting his wife in the hospital when he was killed in a fiery car crash on 14 June 1996, Vittoria, Italy.
