Juan Rulfo (16 May 19177 January 1986) was a Mexican author and photographer. One of Latin America's most esteemed authors, Rulfo's reputation rests on two slim books, the novel Pedro Páramo (1955), and El Llano en llamas (1953,15 of the 17 short stories translated into English The Burning Plain and Other Stories), a collection of short stories that includes his admired tale "¡Diles que no me maten!" ("Tell Them Not to Kill Me!"). He was named alongside Jorge Luis Borges as the most important Spanish-language writer of the 20th century in a poll conducted by Editorial Alfaguara.
