Osvaldo Soriano, Journalist and writer. Born January 6, 1943 in Mar del Plata, Argentina - died on January 29, 1997 in Buenos Aires).
Soriano became a staff writer at La Opinion right from the start in 1971 when editor Jacobo Timerman founded the newspaper. La Opinion was permeated with progressive politics and soon there was an attempt to squash the left-wing influence with-in the paper. After six months of not having any of his articles published, Soriano began writing a story in which a character named Osvaldo Soriano reconstructs the life of English actor Stan Laurel.
In his books, Soriano succeeded in mixing his experiences as a democratic activist and as a strong critic of the violence wielded by reactionary governments with extraordinary humour. A lover of both football/soccer and cinematography, he often honored both in his work. Soriano was a known San Lorenzo fan.
