Dirty Havana trilogy by Pedro Juan Gutiérrez ( Book )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Testifying to the squalor and grit of contemporary Cuba, Pedro Juan Gutierrez's novel in stories chronicles the misadventures of Pedro Juan, a former journalist now living from hand to mouth, half disgusted and half fascinated by the depths to which he has sunk. Like the lives of many of his neighbors in the crumbling, once elegant apartment houses that line Havana's waterfront (and its notorious cruising strip, El Malecon), Pedro Juan's days and nights have been reduced by the so-called special times - the harsh recession that followed the Soviet Union's collapse - to the struggle to feed himself and the escapist pursuit of sex. Collecting garbage, peddling marijuana or black-market produce, clearing undesirables off the streets, whoring himself, begging, sacrificing to the santos, Pedro Juan scrapes by under the shadow of hunger - all the while observing his lovers and friends, and strangers on the street, their suffering and their own lifesaving schemes, with an unsentimental, mocking, yet sympathetic eye. Banned in Cuba but celebrated throughout the Spanish-speaking world, Gutierrez's picaresque novel is a fierce, loving tribute to Havana and the defiant, desperate way of lie that flourishes amid its decay."--BOOK JACKET
Tropical animal by Pedro Juan Gutiérrez ( Book )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publication of Dirty Havana Trilogy, Gutierrez's first novel to be translated into English, catapulted him into the front rank of internationally renowned Latin American authors. Tropical Animal sees the return of the already infamous Pedro Juan, the protagonist at the heart of the first novel. Pursued by Gloria, a proud and sophisticated prostitute on a mission to curb his predatory instincts, Pedro Juan is holed-up in his crumbling Havana apartment, painting, with a growing sense of melancholy as he observes the lives of the hustlers, hipsters and hookers in the city below him. An invitation to Sweden, of all places - cold, unwelcoming, the very antithesis of Pedro's Cuba - seems to offer him a way out, and the seductive phone manner of Agneta proves persuasive enough for him to leave for Europe. However, he soon finds himself haunted by memories of Gloria and their wild sex together, and increasingly uninspired by his new environment. Does Pedro Juan, legendary sexual conquistador and imbiber of hard liquor and substances, finally have to admit that the game is over? Or do his hedonistic instincts have juice enough to keep him active yet?

Pedro Juan's adventures with various women feature a kind of modulated macho: he's not particularly interested in any of them other than physically, especially wife Julia, but he's very good at articulating his boredom and their various flaws.

Our GG in Havana by Pedro Juan Gutiérrez ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
GG - who may or may not be Graham Greene - arrives in Havana in 1955 in search of a good time. He heads to the Shanghai Theatre, and after becoming transfixed by the many sex acts he sees, he goes backstage to meet the star of the show, Charity. GG falls for her, and the pair spend the night together. But when he returns the following night, he finds, to his horror, a dead body in her dressing room; and a newspaper article reveals he's considered the culprit. Packed with vacuum salesmen, Cuban intelligence officials, dead bodies, spies from around the world and the heady nightlife of Havana, Gutierrez re-writes "Our Man in Havana", lacing the narrative with observations of Greene's work, his sources of inspiration, his desires and his phobias in a novel of sex, spies and literary commentary
