Robert Antoni was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1958.   His parents were from Trinidad, but he was raised in the Bahamas.  He studied at Duke University to become a doctor, but an accident left him in a coma.  When he awoke he knew he wanted to be a writer, so he went to the University of Iowa and took up Latin America Literature.  He now teaches at the University of Miami, Fla. as a professor of creative writing.  Antoni won the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Divina Trace.
