Augusto Roa Bastos, (June 13, 1917 April 26, 2005) was a noted Paraguayan novelist and short story writer, and one of the most important Latin American writers of the 20th century. As a teenager he fought in the Chaco War between Paraguay and Bolivia, and he later worked as a journalist, screenwriter and professor. He is best known for his complex novel Yo el Supremo (I, the Supreme) and for his reception of the Premio Cervantes in 1989, Spanish literature''s most prestigious prize. Yo el Supremo is one of the foremost Latin American novels to tackle the topic of the dictator. It explores the dictations and inner thoughts of Dr. José Gaspar Rodríguez de Francia, who ruled Paraguay with an iron fist and no little eccentricity from 1814 until his death in 1840. Roa Bastos'' life and writing were marked by military dictators. In 1947 he was forced into exile in Argentina by the Paraguayan dictator Alfredo Stroessner, and in 1976 he fled Buenos Aires for France in similar political circumstances.
