Leonardo Padura (b. 1955) is one of Cuba's most renowned authors. Four of his novels have been made into Spanish-language television films which are collectively known as Las Cuatro Estaciones - later these films were released as a Netflix miniseries titled Four Seasons in Havana. Padura was also featured on Anthony Bourdain's CNN program, "Parts Unknown - Cuba." A recipient of Cuba's National Prize for Literature in 2012, Padura was also honored with Spain's Premio Principe de Asturias de las Letras in 2015.
