The book of Havana

by Orsola Casagrande | 14 December 2017
PAPERBACK
The stories gathered in this anthology reflect the many complex challenges Havana's citizens have had to endure as a result of their country's political isolation-from the hardships of the "Special Period," to the pitfalls of Cuba's schizophrenic currency system, to the indignities of becoming a cheap tourist destination for well-heeled Westerners. Moving through various moments in its recent history, as well as through different neighbourhoods-from the prefab, Soviet-era maze of Alamar, to the bars and nightclubs of the Malecón and Vedado-these stories also demonstrate the defiance of Havana: surviving decades of economic disappointment with a flair for the comic, the surreal and the fantastical that remains as fresh as the first dreams of revolution.
