This duo from 1971 and 1984, respectively, are vastly different. Inferno is an autobiographical novel that serves up a protagonist who fancies himself a true Latin lover. TTT, on the other hand, takes a more serious look at life in the cabaret society of pre-Castro Havana. Both, however, feature the author's signature wordplay.

"It now seems utterly extraordinary that anyone can write brilliant prose in more than one language; we marvel at a Nabokov, a Beckett, a Cabrera Infante." - Susan Sontag; "With Three Trapped Tigers Cabrera Infante enters the front rank of Latin American novelists. The book belongs with Cortazar's Hopscotch, Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude, and Donoso's The Obscure Bird of Night." - New York Review of Books"
