"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.
