Product description


"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


WILL BE MADE INTO A FILM DIRECTED BY ANDY GARCIA AND STARRING DUSTIN HOFFMAN Cabrera Infante has written the screenplay for the film himself. Filled with puns, wordplay, lists upon lists, and Sternean typography - such as the section entitled "Some Revelations", which consists of several blank pages - this novel is a more modern, sexier, funnier, Cuban Ulysses. Centring on the recollections of a man separated from both is country and his youth, Cabrera Infante creates an enchanting vision of life and the many colourful characters found in steamy Havana's pre-Castro cabaret society.
