Offers the perspective of a Cuban writer who has spent some time away from his natal city, Havana, revealing the contrast to the tourist imagery--a secret Havana that the visitor cannot know.

Spanish Pubs Llc
Solo un escritor cubano de la talla de Abilio Estevez podria ofrecernos esta mirada de La Habana que, frente a la vision turistica, revela una urbe secreta que al visitante le es imposible conocer: sus barrios olvidados y los rincones ocultos de sus enclaves emblematicos, sus tristezas y esperanzas, sus caniculas y aguaceros. En este verdadero paseo sentimental, saldran al paso personajes conocidos o anonimos de la ciudad, asi como las palabras que la capital cubana ha inspirado a escritores como Cernuda, Hemingway o Graham Greene. El resultado es un mosaico compuesto de memoria y ficcion, donde las historias veridicas se funden con los mitos que el autor ha ido forjandose de la ciudad.
This book reveals a secret city that is impossible for the visitor to know: the forgotten neighborhoods and hidden corners with their flagship sites, sorrows and hopes, heat waves and downpours. It's a true sentimental walk; these pages take us from the splendorous old Havana, to that of todays.
