Álvaro Martínez Lacabe


Born in Pamplona in 1973, at the age of eight Alvaro Martinez Lacabe was given Marco Polo’s El libro de las maravillas. When he was 16 years old, On the Road by Jack Kerouac became his bedside book for years. He abandoned his university studies of Sociology and started travelling around Europe, India and Nepal, and during those years he had several different jobs. He was part of the group called Inverso Troupe, which produced a CD of music and poetry, in which some of Alvaro’s poems were published. The group tried to take poetry to bars and to the streets. At the age of 34, Alvaro came to Merced, California, where he takes classes at Merced College. He plans to transfer to CSU Stanislaus to get a Bachelors Degree in English.
