Hidden behind a cloak of exotic mystery, Cuba is virtually unknown to American citizens. G. Cabrera Infante -- in Infante's Inferno and several of his other novels -- allows readers to peek behind the curtain surrounding this island and see the vibrant life that existed there before Fidel Castro's regime. Detailing the sexual education and adventures of the author, Infante's Inferno is a lush, erotic, funny book that provides readers with insight into what it was like to grow 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 mindset with a great deal of fun and self-consciousness. With his hallmark of puns and wordplay -- excellently translated by Suzanne Jill Levine -- Cabrera Infante has hilariously updated the Don Juan myth in a tropical setting.
Über den Autor: Guillermo Cabrera Infante was born in Gibara, Cuba in 1929. He has written novels, stories, critical essays and screenplays, and has lectured at universities throughout the world. He grew up in Cuba under the dictator Batista, knew Guevara (whom he calls Chaos Guevara) and Fidel Castro personally, and lives now in England as an exile. Hailed by the Sunday Times as 'the most outstanding living Cuban novelist', he is the author of Three Trapped Tigers, Infante's Inferno, Holy Smoke, View of Dawn in the Tropics and Writes of Passage, and a collection of film criticism (written from 1954 to 1960, before his exile, under the pseudonym G. Cain), A Twentieth Century Job.
