The lost steps by Alejo Carpentier( Book )

474 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 4,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translated into twenty languages and published in more than fourteen Spanish editions, The Lost Steps, originally published in 1953, is Alejo Carpentier's most heralded novel. A composer, fleeing an empty existence in New York City, takes a journey with his mistress to one of the few remaining areas of the world not yet touched by civilization-the upper reaches of a great South American river. The Lost Steps describes his search, his adventures, and the remarkable decision he makes in a village that seems to be truly outside history. Amazon review

Reasons of State opens in Paris just before the outbreak of World War I. There, a plump Latin American head of state enjoys the city's pleasures, both carnal and aesthetic. A telegram announcing a coup calls him home to a radically different landscape. As Cuba-born Carpentier charts the dictators career--his increasingly severe reprisals, his country's passage from boom to slump, his confrontations with liberal rebels, and finally Marxist revolutionaries--an incisive portrait of political power emerges

From the Publisher: A publishing event: the foundational work on Cuban music by a major figure of the twentieth century, now in English for the first time. In the wake of the Buena Vista Social Club, the world has rediscovered the rich musical tradition of Cuba. A unique combination of popular and elite influences, the music of this island nation has fascinated since the golden age of the son and that New World aural collision of Africa and Europe that made Cuban music the rage in Paris, New York, and Mexico beginning in the 1920s. Originally published in 1946 and never before available in an English translation, Music in Cuba is not only the best and most extensive study of Cuban musical history, it is a work of literature in its own right. Drawing on such primary documents as obscure church circulars, dog-eared musical scores pulled from attics, and the records of the Spanish colonial authorities, Music in Cuba sweeps panoramically from the sixteenth into the twentieth century. Carpentier covers European-style elite Cuban music as well as the popular worlds of rural Spanish folk and urban Afro-Cuban music. In a substantial introduction based on extensive original research, Timothy Brennan explores Carpentier's career prior to the writing of his novels. Looking especially at Carpentier's work as a music reviewer, radio producer, and musical theorist, Brennan suggests new ways of thinking about the role of Latin American artists in Europe between the wars, and the central place of radio and music-club cultures in the European avant-gardes
