Summary

La gran novela póstuma de Guillermo Cabrera Infante.

Con esta novela, digna sucesora de Tres tristes tigres y La Habana para un infante difunto, culmina el fresco de novelas en las que Guillermo Cabrera Infante retrató La Habana prerrevolucionaria como solo podía hacerlo un enamorado de la ciudad. La trama cuenta una pasión entre una adolescente arrolladora y un crítico de cine que le saca unos cuantos años, pero el tema no es la corrupción de la inocencia ni mucho menos el abuso del poder. A ritmo de música cubana y con un derroche de referencias cinematográficas, el autor se interna en los recovecos del deseo para relatar un imposible amour fou que halla su contrapunto en un uso gozoso del lenguaje.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The great posthumous novel by Guillermo Cabrera Infante.
 
This novel, a worthy successor to Tres tristes tigres / Three Trapped Tigers and La Habana para un infante difunto / Infante's Inferno, puts an end to the fresco of novels in which Guillermo Cabrera Infante portrayed pre-revolutionary Havana as only a lover of the city could. The plot tells about the passion between an overpowering teenager and a film critic many years her elder, but the subject matter is not the corruption of innocence, much less the abuse of power. Going along to the rhythm of Cuban music and a wealth of cinematographic references, the author dives into the depths of desire to narrate an impossible amour fou that finds its counterpoint in an energetic and vigorous use of language.
