Heretics by Leonardo Padura( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in German and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A sweeping novel of art theft, anti-Semitism, contemporary Cuba, and crime from a renowned Cuban author. In 1939, the Saint Louis sails from Hamburg into Havana's port with hundreds of Jewish refugees seeking asylum from the Nazi regime. From the docks, nine-year-old Daniel Kaminsky watches as the passengers, including his mother, father, and sister, become embroiled in a fiasco of Cuban corruption. But the Kaminskys have a treasure that they hope will save them: a small Rembrandt portrait of Christ. Yet six days later the vessel is forced to leave the harbor with the family, bound for the horrors of Europe. The Kaminskys, along with their priceless heirloom, disappear. Nearly seven decades later, the Rembrandt reappears in an auction house in London, prompting Daniel's son to travel to Cuba to track down the story of his family's lost masterpiece. He hires the down-on-his-luck private detective Mario Conde, and together they navigate a web of deception and violence in the morally complex city of Havana. In Heretics, Leonardo Padura takes us from the tenements and beaches of Cuba to Rembrandt's gloomy studio in seventeenth-century Amsterdam, telling the story of people forced to choose between the tenets of their faith and the realities of the world, between their personal desires and the demands of their times. A grand detective story and a moving historical drama, Padura's novel is as compelling, mysterious, and enduring as the painting at its center. "--

La novela de mi vida by Leonardo Padura( Book )

Tras dieciocho años en el exilio, Fernando Terry decide volver por un mes a La Habana, atraído por la posibilidad de dar al fin con la autobiografía desaparecida del poeta José María Heredia, al que dedicó su tesis doctoral. De paso, aclarará de una vez las sospechas, que han ido alimentando su rencor, de quién lo denunció y provocó la expulsión de su puesto en la universidad. A la historia de ese reencuentro y a la busca del codiciado manuscrito, titulado precisamente La novela de mi vida, se suman alternativamente dos planos temporales más: el de la vida de Heredia a comienzos del siglo XIX, en los años de la Colonia, y el de los últimos días de su hijo José de Jesús de Heredia, masón, a principios del XX. La novela de mi vida, una vivísima evocación del Romanticismo en El Caribe, constituye un viaje al origen de la conciencia nacional de Cuba a través de la vida de su primer gran poeta: José María Heredia

La cola de la serpiente by Leonardo Padura( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unas cuantas calles casi en ruinas, asediadas por los escombros y los delincuentes, es lo que queda del viejo Barrio Chino de La Habana. Cuando se adentra en él un Conde ya ex policía, dedicado ahora a la compraventa de libros de segunda mano, no puede evitar recordar que estuvo en ese rincón exótico y agreste de la ciudad muchos años antes, en 1989. Todo surgió de la petición de la teniente Patricia Chion, mujer irresistible, para que le ayudara en un extraño caso: el asesinato de Pedro Cuang, un anciano solitario que apareció ahorcado y al que le habían amputado un dedo y grabado con una navaja en el pecho un círculo y dos flechas. Eran rituales de santería que obligaron a hacer pesquisas por otros ámbitos de la ciudad. Pero el Conde descubrió hilos inesperados, negocios secretos y una historia de abnegación y desgracias que le devolvió la realidad oculta de muchas familias emigrantes asiáticas. Como dice una expresión china, tuvo que encontrar la cola de la serpiente para llegar a la cabeza"--Page 4 of cover
