About the Author

Born in 1950, Carlos Victoria is a native of Camaguey, central Cuba. At age fifteen he won a national literary prize, thereby attracting notice from Fidel Castro's regime. Despite a wish to keep free of politics, he was marked as a dissident and later expelled from Havana University on grounds of "ideological deviation." In 1978, police arrested him and confiscated his manuscripts. In 1980 he grabbed the chance to emigrate to the U.S. during the Mariel boatlift. He now lives in Miami, where he works as an editor at the Spanish-language daily newspaper El Nuevo Herald.

Through a succession of novels and short-story collections published in exile, Carlos Victoria has become one of the most honored of Cuba's writers and a favorite of Spanish-language audiences across the world. He has also been widely read in France, where two of his novels have appeared in translation. His literary debut in English is a much-awaited event.

again, good fluidity, some times over narrated situations and development.
