Celebrated Mexican Journalist Germán Dehesa Passes away


Mexico grieves the loss of writer, journalist, playwright,  German Dehesa (1944-2010) . He first disclosed his battle with cancer in his column  back in August of this year. He promised his readers to write for as long as his illness would allow. He passed Thursday, Sept 2. He is survived by his wife and four children.

ABOUT MR. DEHESA:

He studied both chemical engineering and Hispanic literature at the National Autonomous University of Mexico better know as UNAM, he worked as a professor there as well for over 25 years. In 2008 he recieved the Don Quixote award for Journalism awarded to him by Juan Carlos I King of Spain. On August 11 of this year was recognized as a  “Distinguished Citizen” by the Mexico city government..

He was a writer with the “Reforma” group, his work was also published in about 50 other publications nationwide. He became famous due to his masterful ability to play & create with the Spanish language. His dynamic writing style was informative and entertaining, as he wrote by making use of curious and original idioms,expressions found in Mexican Spanish. The employment of  news spellings and double entendres, were  some of the neat tricks he used to create works of humor & genius. He mixed both the critical with the mundane and invited everyone to put their analytical caps on. His column”The Angel’s Gazzete” became famous as it was a work elaborated in colloquial and simple language. Here he shared anecdotes from his personal experiences, talked about current events, experiences common to everyone, along with the expression of his political and critical thought. The column was especially acclaimed for its mini column within the column, a section entitled “How’d You Sleep last night?” In which he called out authorities, expressing grievance, &  dissatisfaction towards ineffective politicians and other lacking posts. Beginning in 06′ the “How’d You Sleep Last Night?” column was mostly dedicated to Arturo Montiel.

He joined the ESPN team as a commentator earlier this year on the show  “Capitanes de ESPN”  along side Jose Ramon Fernandez, Rafael Puente, Hector Huerta. For his brilliant reflections and commentary on Mexican society Mr. Dehesa will continue to be admired and celebrated.

  • Adiós a las trampas  = Goodbye to traps
  • La familia (y otras demoliciones)= The Family (and other demolitions)
  • ¡Qué modos!: usos y costumbres Tenochcas
