Cuban Writers on and Off the Island: Contemporary Narrative Fiction
"In Cuban Writers on and off the Island, Pamela Maria Smorkaloff examines Cuban literary production "across the divide," as an ensemble, regardless of where it originates. She situates the twentieth-century Cuban canon from its origins to the present, offering analyses of the works of seminal authors including Alejo Carpentier, Lezama Lima and Edmundo Desnoes; transitional figures like Reinaldo Arenas, who began his literary career in Cuba and continued it after making the leap into the diaspora; and writers who began their careers outside of Cuba, mostly in the United States, and in English, such as Oscar Hijuelos."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
