Gómez Carrillo Enrique
Guatemalan writer. Born in Guatemala City, the son of Agustín Gómez Carrillo and Josefina Tible, Enrique grew into a well-traveled yet rebellious youngster who challenged a wide range of punishments and rigid boarding schools. On the other hand, he became a passionate reader of French literature. Sometime in his youth, Enrique replaced his family names Gómez Tible — peers mocked him by calling him “comestible,” Spanish for grocery or edible — with those of his father, Gómez Carrillo.
