Manuel Vicent, autor de “Tranvia a la Malvarrosa”, cumple 80 años

Manuel Vicent es un escritor, periodista, articulista y galerista de arte que nació en Villavieja (Castellón) el 10 de marzo de 1936. A los 80 años aún sigue activo en el mundo de las letras, hagamos un repaso a su historia.

Antes de estudiar periodismo obtuvo la licenciatura en Derecho y Filosofía en la Universidad de Valencia. Una vez finalizó la carrera se trasladó a Madrid, donde se adentraría en el mundo del periodismo en la Escuela Oficial. En la capital colaboró con las revistas “Hermano Lobo” y “Triunfo” y “Diario Madrid”. En este último se estrenó como columnista político, cargo que le daría paso a trabajar en “El País”, medio para el que escribe en la actualidad.


En la mayoría de las veces, el trabajo del periodista viene guiado por la vocación. Sin embargo, ese no fue el caso de Manuel Vicent ya que al principio no le atraía el periodismo sino simplemente escribir historias y novelas. Esto cambió cuando publicó su primer artículo titulado “Más allá de Salazar” en el “Diario Madrid” puesto que se dio cuenta que podía hacer periodismo literario, la combinación perfecta para el joven castellonense.

Su obra comprende novelas, teatro, relatos, biografías, artículos periodísticos, libros de viajes, apuntes de gastronomía, entrevistas y semblanzas literarias, entre otros géneros. No solo podemos disfrutar de Manuel Vicent en prensa sino también en la gran pantalla. Titulos como “Tranvía a la Malvarrosa” o “Son de mar” han sido adaptadas para el cine bajo la dirección de José Luis García Sánchez y Bigas Luna, respectivamente.


A lo largo de su trayectoria profesional ha sido galardonado en diversas ocasiones. En 1966 ganó su primer reconocimiento con el premio Alfaguara de Novela por “Pascua y naranjas”. En 1979 quedó finalista en premio Nadal por “El anarquista coronado de adelfas” y ganó el González Ruano por “No pongas tus sucias manos sobre Mozart”. En el 87 al final consiguió el premio Nadal por “La balada de Caín”. Siete años después le otorgaron el Francisco Cerecedo de Periodismo, creado por la Asociación de Periodistas Europeos. Por último, en 1999 gracias a “Son de Mar” ganó el segundo Alfaguara de Novela.

En la actualidad compagina su labor como escritor con galerista de arte, otra de sus grandes pasiones.
