Three Trapped Tigers
Cabrera Infante's masterpiece, Three Trapped Tigers is one of the most playful books to reach the U.S. from Cuba. 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 has been praised as a more modern, sexier, funnier, Cuban Ulysses. Centering on the recollections of a man separated from both his country and his youth, Cabrera Infante creates an enchanting vision of life and the many colorful characters found in steamy Havana's pre-Castro cabaret society.

Review: Three Trapped TigersUser Review - Chris Campanioni - Goodreads
One of my favorite novels of all time. Cabrera Infante is a wordsmith and a music-maker, and this story is sprawling with all kinds of meaning, laughter, anecdotes, and a portrait of Cuba on the eve of revolution. This is a generational text and I recommend it to all readers. Read full review
