Norberto Fuentes - Hemingway a Cuba
Italian | Gamberetti | 1996 | ISBN: 887990020X | 320 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Hemingway si stabilisce a Cuba nel 1938 e, pur allontanandosi spesso, vi rimarrà per oltre vent'anni. Fuentes ci parla di quello straordinario periodo attraverso i luoghi e i personaggi a lui più cari: dal porticciolo di Cojímar al bar Floridita, dal fedele marinaio Gregorio all'incontro con Fidel Castro. "Sono stati necessari molti anni di scrupolose ricerche per comprendere quanto Hemingway fosse penetrato nell'anima di Cuba… Fuentes ci restituisce il nostro Hemingway, un uomo ossessionato dall'incertezza e dalla brevità della vita, ma che è riuscito come pochi a decifrare i misteri del mestiere più solitario del mondo". Gabriel García Márquez.

Cuba occupies a place of undisputed fascination in the American psyche. Despite its proximity to America, this island nation remains a mystery to most Americans. Few Americans have traveled to Havana, and still fewer have traveled deeper into this isolated country. Chris Messner, a photographer, is one of the few Americans who have been able to travel extensively throughout this island. In his book, Cuba Open from the Inside, Messner documents the character of Cuba's people, its rich history, and the vast culture of the country. As Cuba's leaders age and the possibility of travel to Cuba increases, this book acts as an exceptional resource for would be travelers. Through multiple journeys, Messner has covered more than 4,000 miles on the back roads of Cuba. Through his words, he provides a snapshot of this island nation and documents the Cuba of today - the 1950s time-capsule country 90 miles from the US coast.

Cuba: The Morning After: Confronting Castro's Legacy
Publisher: AEI Press | ISBN: 0844741760 | edition 2008 | PDF | 285 pages | 1 mb

As its title announces, this is a book about Cuba’s future. But it is also a book about the future of U.S.-Cuban relations.
It could hardly be otherwise. In spite of a forty-year period with no formal diplomatic relations, the United States and Cuba have never ceased to be close to one another—not simply geographically but in terms of their broader political imaginations as well. No Latin American country arouses the level of interest that Cuba perennially evokes; one need only visit any bookstore or library in the United States to establish this fact. And no American or foreign visitor to Cuba can come away from the island without being struck by how firmly Cubans of all classes and political ideologies have their gaze fixed across the Florida straits. Acting as a bridge of sorts is a large, relatively affluent, and politically well-organized exile community centered in southern Florida, hostile to the regime that governs its homeland, but intensely involved with the island and its people in myriad other ways.
Cuba and the Tempest: Literature and Cinema in the Time of Diaspora (Envisioning Cuba)

Cuba and the Tempest: Literature and Cinema in the Time of Diaspora (Envisioning Cuba)
Eduardo Gonzclez | ISBN: 0807830151 | PDF | 264 pages | 2006 | 6 MB

In a unique analysis of Cuban literature inside and outside the country's borders, Eduardo Gonzalez looks closely at the work of three of the most important contemporary Cuban authors to write in the post-1959 diaspora: Guillermo Cabrera Infante (1929@-2005), who left Cuba for good in 1965 and established himself in London; Antonio Benitez-Rojo (1931@-2005), who settled in the United States; and Leonardo Padura Fuentes (b. 1955), who still lives and writes in Cuba.

Through the positive experiences of exile and wandering that appear in their work, these three writers exhibit what Gonzalez calls "Romantic authorship," a deep connection to the Romantic spirit of irony and complex sublimity crafted in literature by Lord Byron, Thomas De Quincey, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. In Gonzalez's view, a writer becomes a belated Romantic by dint of exile adopted creatively with comic or tragic irony.
