Combining fact and fiction, Alfredo JosÚ Estrada deftly recreates the magical world of pre-Castro Cuba in a stunning literary debut. Welcome to Havana Se˝or Hemingway will appeal not only to Hemingway fans and those interested in Cuba, but to anyone who appreciates righly detailed historical fiction.
From the Publisher: Hemingway was the most American of writers, yet he lived much of his life in Cuba. He had a tremendous affection for the island and it deepy influenced his work, especially his best-known novel "the Old Man and the Sea."
Now, this fascinating new novel brings to life his early days in Havana. Hemingway arrives in 1932 for the marlin fishing, but gets more than he bargained for when he meets Jane Mason, the glamorous but unstable wife of a wealthy businessman. Their love affair takes place against the backdrop of revolution as the Cuban students battle the dictator Machado in the streets.
