Editorial Reviews


" ... a full-fledged catharsis, one that quickly engulfs the reader, making the book hard to put down." -- Mario Tarradell, The Dallas Morning News, January 23, 2005

" ... a serious and wonderful literary journey ... " -- Patricia Maldonado, Hispanic Magazine, January/February 2005

"His characters are in search of a sense that they are human as in the works of Albert Camus...." -- Olga Connor, El Nuevo Herald, November 7, 2004

"Mr. Victoria ... paints pictures with words, describing surroundings with the clarity of state-of-the-art films." -- Mario Tarradell, The Dallas Morning News, January 23, 2005

"This cunning, lyrical novel ... takes the reader on a fascinating and dark journey through the psyche of an exile ... " -- Christine Armario, The Miami Herald, February 6, 2005

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.
