Tato Laviera was born Jes�s Abraham Laviera on May 9, 1950, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He moved to the Lower East Side as a child. He attended Brooklyn College and Cornell University.

He was one of the best-known representatives of the Nuyorican school of poetry. During his lifetime, he published books, plays and poems including AmeR�can, Mixturao and Other Poems, and The King of Cans. After being in a coma since late January, he died from complications of diabetes on November 1, 2013 at the age of 63.
