Mea Cuba by G Cabrera Infante( Book )

45 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in 5 languages and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mea Cuba is the passionate but often hilarious political autobiography of one of the greatest Cuban writers of the century. Sharply opinionated and brutally honest, it explores the nature of the Cuban revolution and the lives of those it has involved or affected, from political leaders such as Fulgencio Batista, Che Guevara, and Fidel Castro to writers like Alejo Carpentier, Reinaldo Arenas, and Heberto Padilla. Mea Cuba overflows with Cabrera Infante's brilliant wit and ingenious wordplay. But it is also a deeply moving analysis of the tragedies - and political farces - of our time. Profound, incisive, enlightening, and entertaining, Mea Cuba is at once a revealing memoir and a fascinating exploration of life, politics, and literature in Cuba today

Guilty of dancing the chachacha by G Cabrera Infante( Book )

42 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in Spanish and English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like the rhythm of the chachacha, the three short stories in this collection are marked by repetition and contrast. They all begin with the same scene, but each is the genesis of a different love story corresponding to three distinct visions of his native country. In this humorous, ironic and touching work, Cabrera Infante invites the reader on a journey through time, and a quest to discover the many faces of his beloved Cuba

Holy smoke by G Cabrera Infante( Book )

40 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At once hilarious, informative and outrageous, this is a marvelously readable homage to the cigar. Sprinkled with a treasure trove of fascinating anecdotes taken from film, history, literature, science, art and folklore, Cabrera Infante lovingly unleashes a veritable arsenal of delicious details about cigars and those who smoke them. Groucho Marx, Sigmund Freud, Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Colette, Orson Welles, Marilyn Monroe, and Humphrey Bogart are among the supporting players making guest appearances in this star vehicle for the cigar." "This classic cigar chronicle also explores how cigars are made, the importance of the brand (and the band), why a cigarette is not a cigar, the history of tobacco itself, and the manners and mores of cigar smoking - including how to cut and how to smoke."--Jacket
