♥ Book Title : Map Drawn by A Spy
☯ Full Synopsis : "Found in an envelope in Guillermo Cabrera Infante's house after his death in 2005, Map Drawn by a Spy is the world-renowned writer's autobiographical account of the last four months he spent in his country. In 1965, following his mother's death, Infante returns to Cuba from Brussels, where he is employed as a cultural attaché at the Cuban embassy. When a few days later his permission to return to Europe is revoked, Infante begins a period of suspicion, uncertainty, and disillusion. Unable to leave the country, denied access to party officials, yet still receiving checks for his work in Belgium, Infante discovers the reality of Cuba under Fidel Castro: imprisonment of homosexuals, silencing of writers, the closing of libraries and newspapers, and the consolidation of power. Both lucid and sincere, Map Drawn by a Spy is a moving portrayal of a fractured society and a writer's struggles to come to terms with his national identity."Article| Guillermo Cabrera Infante| Statement ..."

☯ 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.
