♥ Book Title : Guillermo Cabrera Infante
☯ Full Synopsis : "A native Cuban who has lived in London since 1966, Guillermo Cabrera Infante is, in every sense, a multilingual and multicultural author. Equally at ease in both Spanish and English, he has distinguished himself with daring and innovative novels, essays, short stories, and film scripts written in both languages. His work has won major literary awards in France, Italy, and Spain, as well as a Guggenheim fellowship in the United States. This biography is the first comprehensive exploration of the life and works of Guillermo Cabrera Infante. Drawing on wide-ranging interviews with the author and his family and friends, as well as extensive study of both published and unpublished works, Raymond D. Souza creates an intimate portrait of Cabrera Infante and the cultural and political milieus that shaped his writing, including Three Trapped Tigers (Tres tristes tigres), View of Dawn in the Tropics (Vista del amanecer en el trópico), Infante's Inferno (La Habana para un Infante difunto), Holy Smoke, A Twentieth Century Job (Un oficio del siglo XX), Writes of Passage (Así en la paz como en la guerra), and Mea Cuba."Article| Raymond D.

☯ Full Synopsis : "Detailing the sexual education and adventures of the author, Infante's Inferno is a book about growing up in pre-revolutionary Havana. Viewing every girl as a potential lover, and the movies as a place both for entertainment and potential sexual escapades, Cabrera Infante captures the adolescent male mind-set with a great deal of self-conscious fun. With his hallmark of puns and wordplay - translated by Suzanne Jill Levine and the author - Cabrera Infante has written a hilarious version of the Don Juan myth set in the tropics."Article| Guillermo Cabrera Infante| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Guillermo Cabrera Infante
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Guillermo Cabrera Infante, recipient of the coveted Cervantes Prize, awarded annually to the best living Spanish language writer, is without a doubt the only Londoner whose heart is in Havana. Off to an early start, he published short stories, became a literary ghost editor, founded a literary journal, co-founded a literary society, and spent time in jail for the use of profanity in a publication, all by the time he was 23 years-old." "Cabrera Infante is the author of the prize-winning novel Tres tristes tigres (1967) [Three Trapped Tigers (1971)], the autobiographical novel La Habana para un Infante difunto (1979) [Infante's Inferno (1984)], several volumes of short stories and essays, including Mea Cuba (1992, 1994), Writes of Passage (1993), Cine o Sardina (1997), Todo esta hecho con espejos (1999), La vencana pineal (1999), and Holy Smoke (1985), a book length essay written in English." "In Assays, Essays, and Other Arts, ten of the author's most prominent critics delve into his life and work, crafting essays on Cabrera Infante as journalist, cineaste, literary critic, and commentator on arts, leisure, and memoirs. This book makes available, for the first time, an extensive bibliography of Cabera Infante's essays, a majority of which have been previously unavailable in North America. Assays, Essays, and Other Arts is an admirable response to Cabrera Infante's essays and film writing and provides a valuable resource for students, scholars, or anyone interested in the work of this modern master."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
