A 39-year-old man in Miami gets a letter from his dying father in Cuba, telling him he has a half-brother living nearby. The search that follows exposes the madness and terror of living in exile. In its original Spanish, this novel won the important Letras de Oro prize for 1993. A Bridge in Darkness offers an intimate picture of an environment scarcely accessible to English-language readers: the world of the Cuban exile. It also represents the first substantial appearance in English of a writer widely recognized as a master storyteller. Born in 1950, Carlos Victoria is a native of Camaguey, central Cuba. Despite a wish to keep free of politics, he was marked as a dissident by Fidel Castro's regime. In 1980 he grabbed the chance to emigrate to the U.S. during the Mariel boatlift. Through a succession of novels and short-story collections published in exile, Carlos Victoria has become a favorite of Spanish- and French-language audiences.
