Summary

Dos narraciones procedentes de las principales novelas de Cabrera Infante, publicadas por el autor en un único volumen.

Ella cantaba boleros es producto de las recomendaciones de dos escritores y amigos de Guillermo Cabrera Infante: Mario Vargas Llosa y Javier Marías. El primero le aconsejó que publicara Ella cantaba boleros como narración independiente, en lugar de incluirlo en Tres tristes tigres a manera de hilo conductor. Por su parte, Marías le hizo notar que el último capítulo de La Habana para un infante difunto era perfecto y que debería publicarse por separado. Así pues, en este libro las dos narraciones se encuentran, en palabras de su autor, «juntas y revueltas», aunadas en última instancia por la inventiva, el humor y el erotismo característicos de su literatura.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Two stories extracted from two of Cabrera Infante’s main novels, published by the author in a single volume.
 
She Sang Boleros is the outcome of suggestions by two of Cabrera Infante’s writer friends: Mario Vargas Llosa and Javier Marías. The former advised him to publish Ella cantaba boleros / She Sang Boleros as an independent narrative, instead of including it as a common thread in Tres tristes tigres / Three Trapped Tigers. For his part, Marías pointed out that the last chapter of La Habana para un infante difunto / Infante's Inferno was perfect as a stand-alone and that it should be published separately. Thus, in this book the two narratives live, in the words of its author, "together and not separate", joined by the ingenuity, cleverness, humor, and eroticism characteristic of Cabrera Infante’s literature.
