About the Author
Rubén David González Gallego (1968) was born in Moscow, Soviet Union, with severe cerebral palsy. Gallego was separated from his family at the age of one; he was sent to a state orphanage, because his grandfather, Ignacio Gallego, a Spanish Communist politician (General Secretary of the Spanish Communist Party since 1984), was ashamed of him and told his daughter Aurora Gallego Rodríguez (Ruben's mother) that her son had died. Being an orphan diagnosed with cerebral palsy, he spent his childhood and teenage years in orphanages for disabled children. After a series of dramatic twists of fate and living in many countries on several continents, Ruben chose Ashkelon, Israel where he now lives with his family and diligently works on his writing. "White on Black" and "Chess" became bestsellers in many countries. The book "White and Black" was translated into 25 and won the Booker prize. Ruben's lectures and articles on controversial subjects never fail to attract the public and are widely known.
