Galeano distinguished himself as a writer by transcending orthodox genres
and by combining documentary, fiction, journalism, political analysis and
history. He once proclaimed his obsession as a writer, saying: “I'm a
writer obsessed with remembering, with remembering the past of America and
above all that of Latin America, intimate land condemned to amnesia.”
