Infante's Inferno by G Cabrera Infante ( Book )
16 editions published between 1979 and 2005 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hidden behind a cloak of exotic mystery, Cuba is virtually unknown to American citizens, G. Cabrera Infante--in Infante's Inferno and several of his other novels--allows readers to peek behind the curtain surrounding this island and see the vibrant life that existed there before Fidel Castro's regime. Detailing the sexual education and adventures of the author, Infante's Inferno is a lush, erotic, funny book that provides readers with insight into what it was like to grow up in pre-revolutionary Havana. Viewing every girl as a potential lover, and the movies as a place both for entertainment and potential sexual escapades, Cabera Infante captures the adolescent male mindset with a great deal of fun and self-consciousness. With his hallmark of puns and wordplay--excellently translated by Suzanne Jill Levine--Cabrera Infante has a hilariously updated of the Don Juan myth in a tropical setting
Holy smoke by G Cabrera Infante ( Book )
10 editions published between 1985 and 1997 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"At once hilarious, informative and outrageous, this is a marvelously readable homage to the cigar. Sprinkled with a treasure trove of fascinating anecdotes taken from film, history, literature, science, art and folklore, Cabrera Infante lovingly unleashes a veritable arsenal of delicious details about cigars and those who smoke them. Groucho Marx, Sigmund Freud, Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Colette, Orson Welles, Marilyn Monroe, and Humphrey Bogart are among the supporting players making guest appearances in this star vehicle for the cigar." "This classic cigar chronicle also explores how cigars are made, the importance of the brand (and the band), why a cigarette is not a cigar, the history of tobacco itself, and the manners and mores of cigar smoking - including how to cut and how to smoke."--BOOK JACKET
Mea Cuba by G Cabrera Infante ( Book )
6 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mea Cuba is the passionate but often hilarious political autobiography of one of the greatest Cuban writers of the century. Sharply opinionated and brutally honest, it explores the nature of the Cuban revolution and the lives of those it has involved or affected, from political leaders such as Fulgencio Batista, Che Guevara, and Fidel Castro to writers like Alejo Carpentier, Reinaldo Arenas, and Heberto Padilla. Mea Cuba overflows with Cabrera Infante's brilliant wit and ingenious wordplay. But it is also a deeply moving analysis of the tragedies - and political farces - of our time. Profound, incisive, enlightening, and entertaining, Mea Cuba is at once a revealing memoir and a fascinating exploration of life, politics, and literature in Cuba today

Like the rhythm of the chachacha, the three short stories in this collection are marked by repetition and contrast.
