Nanos Valaoritis is a Greek writer. Born in 1921, he escaped from German-occupied Greece​ in 1944​; moved to Paris in 1954, where he met André Breton; returned to Greece in 1960, where he edited the Greek avant-garde literary review Pali; and moved to San Francisco in 1968, where he lived for over twenty years. He is the co-editor of An Anthology of Modern Greek Poetry (Talisman House) and the author of numerous books of poetry, prose, and essays, several of which were published by ​Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s City Lights Books.
