Paul Grondahl on Hugo Perez in the TU

Paul Grondahl contributes a profile of Hugo Perez in yesterday's Times Union, featuring photos of Hugo with Hunter Thompson and Gabriel Garcia Marquez (pictured here)....

"You may not have known his name, but you couldn't have missed Hugo Perez at Writers Institute readings at the University at Albany between the mid- to late-1990s.

He was the dark-haired, bespectacled and stylishly dressed young man, often sporting a vest and fedora. He stood silently behind a video camera, hour after hour, still as a statue. He focused, zoomed and panned on Norman Mailer, Kurt Vonnegut, Margaret Atwood and a parade of literary luminaries."
